Educational Material for education of end-users of assistive technology (EUSTAT)

EUSTAT has produced Educational material for self-education of end-users of Assistive Technology, and Guidelines and Tools for carrying out educational initiatives that facilitate empowerment of people with disabilities to make informed, appropriate and responsible choices of Assistive Technology.

The EUSTAT products chiefly consist of a set of four books: 1. Go for it! A manual for users of Assistive Technology. An educational package for basic self-training of people with disabilities in relation to assistive technology. 2. Guidelines for courses for user empowerment in relation to Assistive Technology. A manual for trainers and organizers of educational initiatives directly addressed at end-users of Assistive Technology. 3. Programs in Assistive Technology Education for end-users in Europe. An inventory - and a comparative analysis - of 87 ongoing educational programs for end-users that were identified in Europe during the EUSTAT study. 4. Critical factors involved in user education to Assistive Technology. A baseline study that provides the theoretical framework of the whole topic.
