Both routes are available to view here in the file attached below.

Research on Assistive Technology

The Disability Federation of Ireland in collaboration with Enable Ireland are doing some research on Assistive Technology provision for people with disabilities in Ireland. They are interested in hearing the views of people who use technology, either at home, in work, or at school. They are also appealing to parents, professionals and service providers with experience of supporting someone to use or get the technology they need, to ensure that their voices are heard through this survey. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XMWFQD3

Code of Practice on Accessibility of Public Services and Information Provided by Public Bodies

The National Disability Authority (NDA) wants to hear from people with autism, their families, carers and representative organisations about proposed changes to the Code of Practice on Accessibility of Public Services and Information Provided by Public Bodies to ensure it covers issues for people with autism.

This Code of Practice sets out how public bodies can ensure that they comply with the requirements of Part 3 of the Disability Act 2005 to ensure that people with disabilities are enabled to avail of mainstream public services.
