||This Department's Product Design programme, and members of the Disabled Community (Assistive Technology users) have teamed together to create a unique Assistive Technology and Universal Design learning environment, significantly supported and resourced by the entire team. In this environment students realise very quickly the frustrations the disabled community have with the designs of 'off-the-shelf' generic Assistive Technology devices. Often this leads to Assistive Technology abandonment. Acknowledging and addressing these design frustrations together through design or redesign has lead to innovative designs that can play a key role in addressing needs. This paper will illustrate the approach taken and highlight the benefits of this type of approach has for students. Finally, this paper will show the outcomes.
