Use of assistive devices for persons with sensory disabilities (Hearing impairment & visual impairment)

Author(s): Sumbul Akhlaque Khan

Abstract: When children with disabilities are given opportunities to flourish as any other children, they have the potential to lead fulfilling lives and to contribute to the social, cultural and economic vitality of their communities. Yet surviving and thriving can be especially difficult for children with disabilities. All too often they are isolate and excluded, cut off from health, education and social services, and with limited opportunities to participate in family and community life. This frequently impacts on their future employment opportunities and participation in civic life. One of the most important requirements for children with disabilities to flourish in their access to assistive technology. For many children, assistive technology represents the difference between enjoying their rights or being deprived of them. Assistive technology includes products and related services that improve the functioning of children with disabilities. It can be instrumental for children’s development and health, as well as for participation in various facts of life. These include communication, mobility, self-care, household tasks, family relationships, education and engagement in play and recreation. Assistive technology can enhance the quality of life of both children and their families. Assistive technology supports children to access and enjoy their rights and participation in things they value and its bridges the disparities between children with and without disabilities.
