abstract
As a result of the paradigm-shift from the care-model to the support-model for (mentally) disabled people, information flow through 'ordinary' channels becomes essential for those people as well as for others. Television is a popular medium with the mentally disabled. It seems therefore obvious to concentrate our efforts on this particular medium, within this research project. The developed method can later be applied on other media or other target groups.
