Do you use Assistive Technology in your daily life?

The Disability Federation of Ireland in collaboration with Enable Ireland are doing some research on Assistive Technology provision for people with disabilities in Ireland. They are interested in hearing the views of people who use technology, either at home, in work, or at school.

Assistive technology is any piece of equipment or software that is used to help people of all ages to carry out tasks and maximise their capabilities. This would include epilepsy devices such as seizure alarms, monitors and wearable devices.

DFI and Enable are working to ensure that people get the technology they need, so if you or a family member are users of assistive technology, please help further this important work and take the short anonymous survey.

The results of the survey will be used to inform policy recommendations and models of best practice in Ireland.

Please note the date for completion is September 8th 2016.
