DEAA Needs Analysis
This Needs Analysis report was conducted by Disability Elders of All Ages (DEAA) and looks into the use of digital assistive technology (DAT) by people living with physical or sensory disability in South Australia.
The information for this Needs Analysis was gathered through the following processes:
A literature scan
Surveys for community members and service providers
Focus groups and interviews with people living with disability
Our research revealed five broad themes in relation to the use of DAT: access, barriers, skills, confidence and training.
Based on the issues raised in these themes, DEAA will run workshops for people living with disability in regional areas during late 2021 and early 2022. These workshops will aim to improve the knowledge, confidence and skills of people living with physical and sensory disability to use DAT and to strengthen their capacity to connect, communicate and participate in community life.
