Comments about Ability

I appreciate how proactive the UK is in assistive technology and often refer to the models I see in your magazine when thinking of our inclusion programs in the US. We are a litigation-based society over here and I try my best to help alleviate that, just a little bit, in my school district.  Many thanks! Tina Schwartz, AT Practitioner.

An informative publication. It looks good on screen as an e-Book too. Peter Bryenton, New College Worcester
