What Is Assistive Technology and What Can It Do for Me or My Family? [and] Creating a Family-Driven Technology Team. Key Notes.
Access Group, Atlanta, GA.
Two brief fact sheets for families of children with disabilities provide basic information on: (1) assistive technology within the family setting, and (2) the concept of parent management of a technology team. The first fact sheet briefly defines assistive technology and discusses technology for physically and mentally challenged individuals, differences between high and low technology aids, examples of assistive technology aids, and identification of assistive technology needs. The second fact sheet offers a rationale for families playing a key role on the technology team, outlines the role of parents as team managers, and gives suggestions for selecting team members. Five suggested resources and publications conclude the second fact sheet. (DB)
