5.0 out of 5 stars This is the ONE Jan. 19 2006
By Todd Plummer - Published on Amazon.com
If you are a person with disabilities or have some functional limitation, there are so many tools and resources available to help you achieve your potential. But where to start? Start with this book by the Alliance for Technology Access! From establishing a vision of how your life to be, to giving you step-by-step instructions for creating a plan, to educating you about technology tools that are available, to describing your legal rights, this book has it all. I know of dozens of people for whom this book has opened doors they barely had dreamed of.

This book is outdated but does have wonderful guides in the back for how to choose the best technology/types for every individual. The checklist will never go out of date even if the products are out of date. Good if you want a beginning knowledge of the various types of assistive technology available.

Back in 2000 I was in an AT class and this was one of our textbooks, needless to say things have changed in the AT world and I was so happy to find this updated version, I hope that it is upgraded again soon. I realized how full of information it really is. Easy reading not difficult for anyone.

not what i expected at all. the only thing useful for me were perhaps some of the sources, which i could mostly find online. i have chronic pain, and this book was mainly written for people who are blind, deaf, or missing fingers, etc. i wouldn't recommend it.
