The use of Assistive Technology with people with profound and multiple disabilities is a specialised subfield. Drawing on its authors' experiences and observations at a UK charitable foundation that offers specialised educational, residential and therapeutic facilities, this paper describes the distinct challenges that present themselves when applying AT to address the needs of this often-overlooked sector of the community. It is hoped that this will help raise awareness and contribute to improving the overall quality of AT provision in this area.
