Abstract

This is the second installment of a regular column that focuses on “low- and high-tech” assistive devices which can be used by people with disabilities to enhance independence. The purpose of the column is to introduce readers to the variety of devices that are available, to discuss how they are used and to advise the reader on how to use them. Congregations, clergy and various religious and other professionals will find this information useful in their ministry to people with disabilities, for it is often through such persons that the fulfillment of accessibility and mobility needs first begins. Knowing what is available and what can be done will save time and money for the investigator and the purchaser.
