Technology for Independent Living II: Issues in Technology for Daily Living, Education, and Employment. Proceedings of the 1981 Workshops on Science and Technology for the Handicapped.
Redden, Martha Ross, Ed.; Stern, Virginia W., Ed.
This book is based upon group participation and presentations given at three regional workshops on science and technology for the handicapped. The first workshop focused on issues in technology for daily living. Papers presented examined such areas as daily living technology for the disabled, psychological aspects of rehabilitation engineering, technology for recreation, and technology for the living environment. The second workshop addressed issues in technology for education. Papers presented considered such areas as low-budget ideas for the visually impaired in science, modifications of effective teaching of handicapped students, robotic manipulation aids in rehabilitation, computer-assisted lipreading for the deaf, and closed captioning of motion film for use on national television and for delayed broadcast by affiliates. The third workshop explored issues in technology for employment. Papers presented considered such topics as barrier free office design, factors in choosing technology for the job site, access to the total work environment, and innovations in adaptive equipment and job site modifications. A list of participants for the three workshops, workshop goals, and workshop agendas are included. (JN)
