This white paper will provide the reader with insight into the role technology plays for the full participation of persons with disabilities and older people in the digital society. The authors consider equal opportunities to participate in all realms of life a human right. The paper will help the reader to understand what the barriers to full digital inclusion for these groups are, how changing scenarios in society should lead to the definition of new goals and how these goals could be reached.

This involves the removal of barriers of all kinds and the empowerment of people, including the development of digital competencies that allow them to participate in the digital society.

Since 2014 one of our occupational therapists has specialised in augmentative and alternative communication through iPad and Apps developing individual solutions for service users with intellectual disabilities. The person centred approaches strongly enhance the users’ possibilities to communicate and their quality of life.
The iPad is a mainstream device with built in accessibility features that can be customized to individual needs, and offers all possibilities of a modern computer.
The Accessible and Assistive Technology industry is undergoing a period of intense change, but it remains challenging to predict the impact and outcomes of that change. Traditional providers face an uncertain outlook and must seek ways to respond and regain control as external influences impact upon both design and business models, driven by trends in technology design and use, public policy, changing aspirations of the market and a public funding crisis.
