Abstract:
This book deals with organisational and methodological issues involved in setting up Assistive Technology Information / Advice centres. The model presented – framed in the Italian context – is based on several years’ experience of the SIVA service (Assistive Technology Research and Information Centre) of the Don Gnocchi Foundation (a major non-profit provider of rehabilitation services in Italy, based in Milano). Assistive Technology Information / Advice services may be part of a local Rehabilitation Unit, or stand alone organisations providing consultancy. Their mission is providing either information / guidance or individual assessment for recommending assistive technology solutions case by case. The book offers a set of guidelines on how to carry out this activities.
