Assistive Technology Survey


Monday September 05 2016 08:44 AM

Do you or someone you know use Assistive Technology to support them in their daily lives?

The Disability Federation of Ireland in collaboration with Enable Ireland are doing some research on Assistive Technology provision for people with disabilities in Ireland. We are interested in hearing the views of people who use technology, either at home, in work, or at school. We are also appealing to parents, professionals and service providers with experience of supporting someone to use or get the technology they need, to ensure that their voices are heard through this survey.

By filling out this survey, you will be contributing to our work, calling for better access and provision of Assistive Technology.  We are working to ensure that people get the technology they need, so that Ireland is fully inclusive of people with disabilities and disabling conditions so that they can fully exercise their civil, social and human rights.

This survey is to support and inform the work that we are doing. The results of this survey will be used to inform policy recommendations and models of best practice in Ireland. We define assistive technology as any piece of equipment or software that is used to help people of all ages to carry out tasks and maximise their capabilities. 

Please feel free to share this widely with anyone who may have an interest in/or uses technology for every day needs. Please click on the link below to complete the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XMWFQD3

Closing Date

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