“I have about 20 years’ experience managing repetitive strain injury using a wide range of assistive technologies, so I was not expecting to learn a lot from Brighter Future AT that I didn’t already know. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. Hilary is exceptionally knowledgeable and thorough and takes an obvious interest in providing the best advice for her clients. I would recommend her services to anyone.”

“We specialize in the defence of catastrophic claims. We have had a number of cases recently where we have been greatly assisted by Hilary Cotter/Brighter Future AT in reviewing the detailed needs of Plaintiffs in respect of assistive technology. We have found Hilary’s input of great benefit to us and her detailed reports have provided great assistance in understanding a Plaintiff’s needs, commenting on same and costing the needs arising. We are more than happy to recommend Brighter Future AT in providing expert reports in this area.”

“I have liaised with Hilary a number of times now in my role supporting brain injury survivors in Vocational Rehabilitation and have found her very knowledgeable about her area of expertise and easy to deal with. The clients I have worked with who she has completed Assistive Technology assessments with have found the process very helpful in providing practical solutions to compensate for difficulties they have experienced in the workplace in cognitive areas such as memory, attention, planning and organising and also physical challenges. I have also found her comprehensive assessment reports very helpful in informing my work with them. I would recommend this service to people with disabilities looking for supports to increase their performance and satisfaction in the workplace and the professionals working with them.”

“We brought our daughter to see Hilary prior to starting Secondary School this year. Our daughter has a chromosome defect syndrome, hyper joint mobility, slow processing speed, organisational issues as well as other issues that cause her to struggle in and out of school.  I was a bit apprehensive, that this assessment with Hilary, would find anything at all that would help her with any of her issues.  I need not have worried at all. From the first phone call requesting an appointment, I knew we were going to the right person and that this was going to help our daughter immensely. Hilary has a certain vibe about her that made us and our daughter feel so comfortable around her and with the assessment. We left the assessment with so much knowledge about online apps that could be downloaded for free which my daughter now uses in school. I could go on so much about how Hilary has helped us but all I will say is THANK YOU so much, Hilary, for your time and effort in helping our little girl. We learned so much from you and how to help her going forward. ”

“As my son has complex needs and relies hugely on Assistive technology to gain even a teeny bit of independence I have found Hilary’s input invaluable. Her knowledge, background research and ability to stay focused on the main goal or requirement means my son has accessed many areas and achieved a few of our goals already, and Hilary is steadily working to achieve them all.”
Parent, Co. Wexford.

“I asked Hilary to work with a client who had very restricted use of Assistive Technology so that he could participate in research and his voice would be heard. Hilary always ensured that the client’s views were at the centre of the process. She was always open and honest with me and she was always mindful of everyone in a very complex situation. I would recommend Hilary’s services in terms of working with families and individuals of all ages”

“I would highly recommend Hilary to provide assistance navigating the Irish education system. My son has received precious help on foot of Hilary’s excellent report. Personally he felt a lot more confident and validated after meeting with her and listening to all her great tips and advice. I can’t thank you enough for helping us so much and in such a pleasant way.”

“I really enjoyed the course and learned so much in a short space of time. I will be recommending this training to my colleagues.”

“I brought my 12-year-old daughter, who has a connective tissue disorder with hypermobility, to Hilary for an Assistive Technology assessment and was very happy with the outcome. She put her at ease immediately, so that it did not feel like an assessment and she actually enjoyed exploring the various technology aids that Hilary showed her. We came away from the assessment with lots of knowledge about free online programs which were immediately available to us, as well as afterwards receiving the report from Hilary, which we were able to give to her school to apply for funding for assistive technology there.”

“Thank you for your recent visit to our house and your assessment of how Assistive Technology could help my daughter to deal with her learning difficulties. The suggestions that you made and the clear way that you explained and demonstrated them to both me and my daughter were extremely helpful. The resulting report was even more helpful and it is great to have a hard copy of all that you suggested. Thank you for your assistance.”
