Assistive Technology shouldnt be left to the experts. It shouldnt be based in an AT Center where experts lie in wait for the disabled to show up. The AT evaluation process should not be Show and Sell. This book is designed to equip those involved in disabilities - the disabled and their families, friends, teachers and community organizations - to make informed choices. Its designed to demystify the evaluation process and reduce the fear of and distrust of technology. Lets promote evaluation that is based on old fashioned detective work: - worn shoe-leather, on-location dialogue and field work instead of clinical surveys and checklists.

Lets focus on the individuals participation in community, not their separation from it. - No more tiny yellow buses! Community-Based Assistive Technology is inspired by the lifework of Celestine Freinet, Paulo Freire, Michel Foucault, David Werner and the great community-based rehabilitation projects around the world.

When information in the hands of those who need it, they are no longer at the mercy of experts and authority.
