for children and young adults who experience disability on January 26th
Join FACT for an amazing night of mini-presentations from parents and young adults who experience disability on Thursday, January 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. “Assistive Technology Tools for Living, Learning, Working and Playing” is a free event at the Shriner’s Hospital Auditorium, 3101 S.W. Sam Jackson Park Road.
The presenters will share how they have utilized assistive technology in areas including: augmentative communication, behavior, education, emotional regulation, and independence. Come meet parents, see assistive technology in action, hear stories, and explore different devices that might work for your child or a young adult in your family. Resource tables will be in place before and after the event to provide a hands-on experience.
There will be discussions how assistive technology:
- Be low-tech, mid-tech and high tech
- Can be used in different environments like home, school and the community.
- Can help individuals live empowered lives
