Abstract: This is a five-part presentation of the results prepared for the Navajo Nation Human Research Review Board and the Navajo people. Part four summarizes the results from the seven groups for individuals with disabilities who use assistive technology (AT) and the two focus groups for AT provider’s discussions. In an effort to help improve AT provisions, similar and different or unique issues between IWD who use AT and providers of AT are pointed out for each overlapping theme, along with demographic considerations and comparisons. Parts 1 through 3 and part 5 are available under accession numbers O19306 through O19308 and O19310. Run time: 13 minutes 19 seconds.
