The lecture discusses the issue related to the assessment and selection of assistive solutions within individual rehabilitation programmes. It suggests a methodology that helps to schedule the assessment in the various stages of the programme in order to achieve a clinically valid and user-accepted choice, with a verifiable long-term outcome. As a matter of fact, assistive technology is too-often carried out too late, at the end of the programme or even later, withoug adequate time for trials, familiarization and training. The lecture illustrate some tools that prevent that risk, by carrying out preliminary assessments in earlier stages of the programmes and facilitate the definition of the objectives to be achieved. Finaly, the lecture suggests a self-administered quality assessment grid that helps understand how well the local assistive technology service delivery system works.
