Product Details


Design Meets Disability may be compared to Donald Norman’s (1988) Psychology of Everyday Things, which showed how research in cognitive psychology can inform commercial design. Similarly, Design Meets Disability explains how commercial design principles can be used to make more personally identifiable and valuable assistive technologies. As important as Norman’s book was to technology design, Design Meets Disability could have a similar impact within the AT field.—Augmentative and Alternative Communication

The book… acts as a manifesto by condemning many of the existing products designed for people with disabilities, and challenging designers to use their skills to develop inspiring alternatives.
