Digitalization in social services – Opportunities and barriers for people with disabilities
Social and public services are increasingly digitized, and important functions for participation in society are transferred to digital solutions. At the same time digital solutions offer new ways of providing sup-port, and may offer people with disabilities new opportunities to participate in society. However, this requires special focus on how services are designed in order to make them accessible for everyone.
In this webinar, we will focus on digital solutions in social services to support people with disabilities' participation in society.
To be experienced at the webinar:
- Stefan Johansson from the Royal Technological Institute in Stockholm, researcher in participation, disability, digital design and accessibility.
- An introduction to universal design in digital social services.
- Cases and experiences from the Nordic countries and group discussions.
