Session Type: Lecture (sequence of presentations with questions and answers)
The ASSISTID Symposium presents evidence-based research in the use of AT to address key educational, communication, life-skills issues and ethical implications, with a focus on empowering people of all ages with ID or ASD to live as independent and satisfying lives as possible. ASSISTID, co-funded by the charity Respect and the EU, is the largest European programme researching the use of AT for ID and ASD. In collaboration with the Daughters of Charity Services for Disability, ASSISTID brings together multidisciplinary teams of engineers, specials educators, computer scientists and entrepreneurs to ensure effective AT is designed according to a person’s needs and abilities. The 6 ASSISTID contributors to the symposium will address the following research topics:
