Nothing About Us, Without Us: Developing Innovative Technologies For, By and With Disabled Persons. By David Werner with the PROJIMO team and many friends.
This online book highlights work being done in Mexico with kids with disabilities and their parents and friends.
From the website: This is an "idea book" about problem solving - not a "cookbook" with precise instructions and measurements for making pre-designed aids and equipment. It is about thinking problems through rather than just following instructions. Nevertheless, you can use it as a reference book concerning different disabilities, assistive devices, and methods of problem solving. What a great resource! Click on this link to read the book.
Learn more about David Werner and PROJIMO: Click on this link to see a presentation given by David Werner at the 5th Anniversary Seminar of JANNET (can someone tell me what that stands for?). The presentation is looking at the work being done by PROJIMO with the people in Mexico assisting them to regain mobility and function so that they can participate in meaningful occupations. Some pictures and stories are quite graphic.
PROJIMO believes very much in what a disabled activist in Zimbabwe, Africa said:
"It is society that needs to be rehabilitated."
