“The case for the provision of assistive technology is often made by advocates, but is less often backed up by the level of clear, unambiguous data in the manner presented in the discussion paper. Section by section the report makes a case for provision with reference to diverse criteria. Whilst clearly seeking to address the immediate need in Ireland, the analysis and data has implications for the funding of accessible technologies in many parts of the world. At a time when securing funding is an increasingly challenging objective, the discussion paper will do much to assist, both through the clarity of case and the recommendations to build an efficient and coherent model to address needs.”
