“Saint John of God Community Services is committed to using assistive technology to support people attending its services to use and enhance their own abilities, and in doing so, encourage and facilitate their independence.  There is no doubt that the appropriate Assistive Technology can transform the lives of people with disabilities and ensure they take their rightful place as equal citizens in Irish society.  The “Assistive Technology for People with Disabilities and Older People Discussion Document” sets out in straight forward manner specific recommendations which could provide an appropriate road map in ensuring that people with disabilities receive efficient and effective Assistive Technology services and supports over the whole of their life.  The introduction of an Assistive Technology Passport would be an extremely important tool in supporting that goal.  The clear data and information contained in the report is enhanced and enriched by the specific case studies of individuals who provide real life examples of the transformative power of assistive technology.   Saint John of God Community Services is happy to endorse this document and looks forward to supporting the implementation of the recommendations”.
