  • 11. Denise Walbrugh says… www .enabledbydesign.org blog: http://enabledbydesign.org/blog twitter: http://twitter.com/enabledby Enabled by Design-er “ Enabled by Design has been a real beacon of how things should be, kit-wise and attitude-wise too, and has helped me a lot, as I’m sure it has others”.
  • 12. So what is today all about?!? www .enabledbydesign.org blog: http://enabledbydesign.org/blog twitter: http://twitter.com/enabledby We feel that it’s about time that we start recognising people for being just that, people. and We move away from the ill-informed stereotypes often applied to ageing and disability The Enabled by Design ethos: “ We believe the world is made up of people who have a range of abilities, with each person having their own personal strengths and qualities. We are passionate about harnessing these strengths to empower people to live as independently as possible.”
  • 13. Design for All (DfA) www .enabledbydesign.org blog: http://enabledbydesign.org/blog twitter: http://twitter.com/enabledby Design for All (DfA) is a design philosophy targeting the use of products, services and systems by as many people as possible without the need for adaptation. Design for All is design for human diversity, social inclusion and equality. Closely related to Inclusive Design and Universal Design Result: Products and services suitable for general public including older people and people with disabilities

Accessibility for the Masses www .enabledbydesign.org blog: http://enabledbydesign.org/blog twitter: http://twitter.com/enabledby By mainstreaming accessibility, this can help to remove any stigma attached to independent living products, while making people's lives that bit easier and in turn more manageable. For us, Design for All means accessibility for the masses. Mainstreaming accessibility
