Assistive Technology aims to offer the widest range of supports so that the user can make best use of all the features and advantages that technology has to offer. Assistive Technology is any item, whether purchased off the shelf, or customized, which enhances an individual’s independence. Assistive technology works best when a good match is reached between the user and the technology. AT is a tool, a means to an end. It is not an end in itself. This is an important point to remember when you are trying out different types of Assistive Technologies. User-friendliness is a key feature to look out for when you set about trialing new devices, or introducing devices to someone else (Enable Ireland, 2011).
