Abstract

TATE [Through Assistive Technology to Employment] was a three‐year research project European funded through the second round of the Equal Communities Programme, which ended in December 2007. The project researched the use of existing and innovative technologies to remove or reduce barriers to accessing employment or independence for people with learning disabilities. The processes of the project and the involvement of the beneficiaries (adults with learning disabilities) in the research have been documented (Aspinall et al, 2007; Aspinall, 2007; Aspinall, 2008). This paper describes the outputs from the project.

Abstract

This paper examines the involvement in the TATE [Through Assistive Technology to Employment] Project of people with learning disabilities who were beneficiaries of that project. TATE was a three‐year research project funded through the Equal Community Programme, which finished in December 2007. The beneficiaries of TATE were involved in all aspects of the project from management to advising about the actual assistive technology devices they believed would increase their independence and remove barriers to employment.

Abstract

This paper describes the TATE [Through Assistive Technology to Employment] Project. TATE is a European Social Fund Equal project that developed electronic assistive technology (EAT) to enhance the independence and employability of adults with learning disabilities. This paper describes the model developed by the TATE Project for the implementation of EAT into organisations for adults with learning disabilities. The TATE Project has resulted in positive benefits to the lives of people with learning disabilities through the use of EAT and there has subsequently been much interest generated in further promoting the use of EAT within the UK and the EU.

Abstract

This paper looks at some case studies from the TATE [Through Assistive Technology to Employment] Project. Funded through the second round of the Equal Community Programme (ESF) the TATE Project has looked at how assistive technology and telecare can be implemented to enhance the quality of life for adults with learning disabilities. Using a series of case studies, the paper illustrates some of the advantages of both innovative and traditional assistive technology and telecare to the service user, formal and family carers.
