Assistive Technology and Communication

Below is a summary.  Click here to browse full listings.

Technology has become a part of our everyday lives and assistive technology can allow some people with disabilities to:

  • have greater control over their own lives;
  • participate in and contribute more fully to activities in their home, school, work environments, and in their communities;
  • interact to a greater extent with non-disabled individuals;
  • benefit from opportunities that are taken for granted by individuals who do not have disabilities
  • help family carers and individuals with learning disabilities to plan and organise the level of support they need.
  • Many people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) do not communicate using formal communication like speech, symbols or signs. But this does not mean that they can't communicate.
