The ENTELIS network is a newly established network of organisations with different backgrounds (education, social care, technology, research, advocacy, etc.) committed to full digital inclusion of persons with disabilities and older adults. 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.

However, many people with disabilities and elderly people experience difficulties in engaging with ICT and therefore may be prevented from fully enjoying its benefits. This works against the establishment of the inclusive society demanded by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Since 2007 I have been studying the role of technology in the management of disabilities and more specifically intellectual disabilities. In 2011, I carried out a doctoral research in information science and communication which was entitled “Uses and socio practices (re) éducommunicationnels for people with mental disabilities. Computer and Internet media tools” in which I studied access, ownership and use of computers and the Internet by and for people with intellectual disabilities accommodated in specialized institutions in France.
