The aims of this research are threefold. They are: to examine the use of interactive technology by teachers working with a low incidence population within the defined context of multisensory environments; to identify case studies illustrating good practice in the use of interactive technology; to develop guidance materials for further dissemination. Two approaches are used in the collection of research data for this study: focus group interviews and illustrative multi-case studies (filmed using digital technology). This research highlights the use of interactive technology amongst a very low incidence population by teachers who are often practitioners working in isolation. The rationale for the choice of methodology therefore rests on the need to canvass views nationally and ethically within a relatively short and cost-effective timeframe. The use of digitally filmed illustrative case studies provides the additional advantage of dissemination through the Web. Outcomes: A framework has been developed which brings together good practice within both mainstream and specialist provision. Case study material is set against this framework and illustrates its key components.
