This summarize of the presentation performed in the panel "Sciences For Inclusion" rests on the following main features: the scientific power of the Assistive Technology Assessment ATA process, the new professional profile within a multidisciplinary team working in a center for technical aid, and the importance the assessing personal and environmental factors within the ATA process.

The ATA model outlines an ideal process which provides reference guidelines for both public and private centers for technical aid provision, allowing them to compare, evaluate and improve their own matching model.

Introduction The assistive technology assessment process is not a result of a mere academic mental exercise, but provides examples of applications of it. The theoretical view of the ATA process emerges from experimental research applied to rehabilitation and assistive technologies; the international ideal model of assistive technology assessment process is already applied in centers for technical aid.

It was possible to define the assessment model proposed in the present workshop since the model is already operative in the center of Rome.

This center offers a non-commercial advisory service and support on assistive technologies and computers for communication, learning, and autonomy. The service is free of charge for users who access it through the Italian National Health Service. The new International ATA process Modelling an ideal model of effective Assistive Technology Assessment process of a center for AT provision is difficult if one takes into account the extraordinary variety of systems of 58 Panel 2 regional and national health and social care, both public and private in Western countries.

Just to synthesize, in a schematic way, some of these differences, we have divided in two models the main national health systems in the Western countries: the Public and the Private health system.

According to each national health system model, the recipient of the health system can be characterized as an user of non-commercial advisory service and support on AT, or a client of commercial provision of AT, or a patient of a medical center for technical aid. Finally, according to each national health system model, the AT will be free of charge in a public health system or by paying in a private health system.

The elements of each model are often mixed rather than juxtaposed. Since the ATA is a user-driven process any activity of the staff must to find a correspondence to an user action and vice-versa. The actions of the center can be grouped in four phases. The multidisciplinary team evaluates the outcome of the matching assessment, then proposes the assistive solution to the user.

When the assistive solution proposed requires an environmental evaluation, the team initiates the Environmental Assessment Process that we will deepen in the segment 3 of this workshop. The ATA process means to guide a multidisciplinary team to provide not just devices but much more: assistive solutions; in order to empower the user and improve the well-being.

The individual functioning and disability of the user are taken into account by the multidisciplinary team that evaluates health conditions of the user. The matching process then aims to support activity limitations and enhance individual functioning.

Finally, overcoming a disablement may involve something more than just a device, it often 60 Panel 2 requires a mix of mainstream and assistive technologies whose matching is different from one individual and another, and from one context to another.

Therefore, the multidisciplinary team has to take in a serious account the participation restrictions.

However, one of the unsolved problems is the difficulty, already met several times, of defining the features of a center for technical aid. However, it should be noted that this particularization of the model is to clash with some trends that are aimed at promoting, instead, globalization for example, this occurs both in social and health policies of the European Community and in those of the World Health Organization.

The internationalization of a model, indeed, is advantageous since it often emerges as a synthesis of experiences of regional models. Moreover, it offers the opportunity, by sharing a theoretical model and evaluation criteria, to share data essential to scientific research, planning, and evaluation of national and international policies and the verification of the quality of public services.
