This paper reports the interim findings of a project involving the trial of iPads with two participant co-researchers who have physical disabilities and ten residents of a high support institution for people with disabilities. The project methodology involved: 1) evaluation of participants’ use of the devices; 2) pre- and post-intervention testing using goal attainment scaling; 3) training and ongoing support in use of the device; and 4) analysis of user satisfaction with the iPad using a modified version of the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with Assistive Technology instrument..
