This paper explores in more depth the presentation that was given by the authors at the Communication Matters 2014 conference. The paper aims to describe the DART (Disseminating Assistive Roles and Technology) Project, including the identification of the main findings of the project’s research report on Assistive Technology provision in Further Education (Maudslay, 2014). Note that a follow up research report based on a survey and focus group work undertaken in 2014-15 is underway at time of writing. The DART project has run from 2010-2015 thus far, note that a possible continuation of the project is currently under discussion. The DART project is thought to be of interest to the Communication Matters journal readership due to the roll the Assistive Technologist can play in the assessment, provisioning and ongoing support of AAC and related technologies and as such links to project resources are provided in this paper.
