Abstract

This paper explores the pivotal role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in enhancing the well-being and integration of disabled migrants in the United States. As the global population continues to migrate, the plight of disabled individuals navigating new environments poses multifaceted challenges. Drawing upon scholarly literature and empirical evidence, this study elucidates how ICT solutions offer innovative means to address these challenges and facilitate the empowerment of disabled migrants. Through a systematic review of existing research, this paper identifies various ICT tools and platforms tailored to cater to the diverse needs of disabled migrants, encompassing accessibility, communication, education, employment, and healthcare domains. Furthermore, it examines the socio-technical implications and barriers associated with the adoption and implementation of ICT solutions in supporting disabled migrants. By critically analyzing case studies and best practices, this paper delineates the efficacy of ICT interventions in fostering inclusion, autonomy, and participation among disabled migrants. Additionally, it underscores the importance of policy frameworks and collaborative efforts among stakeholders to ensure equitable access to ICT resources and services for this marginalized population. The findings underscore the transformative potential of ICT technologies in mitigating disparities and promoting the social inclusion and integration of disabled migrants in the United States. This study contributes to the burgeoning discourse on ICT-enabled interventions for vulnerable populations and provides insights for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers seeking to harness technology for the empowerment of disabled migrants. Ultimately, this paper advocates for a holistic approach that prioritizes the rights, dignity, and agency of disabled migrants, thereby fostering a more inclusive and equitable society.
