Paper focuses on the GATEWAY Project, which was designed to promote the use of assistive technology (AT) for people with disabilities who are entering college and the workplace. The project was developed because of a perceived deficiency in assessment guidelines for students with disabilities in Europe. The GATEWAY Project has focused on the design and development of a website created to raise awareness on how AT can help to unlock the potential of people with disabilities. Case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of AT are posted on the website, while implications for the development of an online assessment tool for education professionals across Europe is discussed. This paper was written by professionals at the National High Tech Assistive Technology Training Service in Dublin, Ireland.
