Do you know of people who could benefit from new technologies to lead a meaningful life or to participate in their community?

New assistive technologies (AT) solutions offer opportunities to people with disabilities to stay connected and engaged in meaningful, active and community life. People are using technology to control homes, access computers, communicate, and move about in their communities of choice.

However many people may be unaware or uncertain of newer technologies available, or experience challenges in choosing and implementing the right technology to achieve their goals and hopes.

This presentation outlines some of the newer technology options that offer opportunities to people with disabilities in living a meaningful life. Join us in exploring real life stories of people using technology and discussing the technology opportunities and barriers that you can encounter.

  • Digital stories of technology use
