Hilary Cotter BSc (Curr Occ)

Owner and Clinical Specialist in Assistive Technology

Hilary Cotter founded Brighter Future AT. She is an Occupational Therapist by training and is the only Clinical Specialist in Assistive Technology working in private practice in Ireland. She has been practising as an Occupational Therapist for over 20 years, working in a variety of roles and settings within Ireland and the UK, with both adults and children with complex needs.  She worked as a Senior Occupational Therapist in the Assistive Technology and Specialised Seating service in the Central Remedial Clinic and she set up the first ever Assistive Technology service within a Primary Care setting in the HSE. Most recently, she worked as a Clinical Specialist in Assistive Technology in the National Assistive Technology Training Service in Enable Ireland.

She now runs Brighter Future AT, a private assistive technology assessment and support service. She offers individual assessment and training in all aspects of Assistive Technology, for both children and adults.  For children, this often means looking at what technology might help them if they’re struggling with handwriting, grammar/spelling and organisational skills, but it can also include assessing means of access to communication devices, smart home technology or alternative controls for powered mobility.  She also offers group training in all aspects of Assistive Technology.
