Assistive Technology: A Selective Bibliography. Reference Bibliography No. 92-1.
Strauss, Carol, Comp.
Assistive technology enables persons with disabilities to experience increased independence in daily living, fuller participation in employment and education, and broader opportunities in leisure and recreation. The first of four sections of this annotated bibliography cites 41 books, articles, and pamphlets published since 1985 that present the advantages and limitations of adapting technology for use by individuals who have visual or physical disabilities. Publisher's addresses are included for materials that are not readily obtainable through libraries and book stores. The second section lists 11 resources that provide information on obtaining funding for the purchase of assistive technology, but does not offer guides for the selection and evaluation of specific equipment or devices. Thirteen magazines that provide information on assistive devices, products, and services are listed in the third section, and the final section presents a directory of organizations that can provide additional information together with brief descriptions of the types of products or services they offer. Lists of additional reference bibliographies and reference circulars on topics related to resources and services for handicapped persons are included. (BBM)
