In this webinar, we explored how to think through the supports individuals/families use and how technology can be incorporated to aid independent living or support caregiving, we saw real life examples of technology that benefit people with disabilities and their caregivers, and we heard about a resource that is available in each state to help individuals and families connect with technology that fits their needs.
Our presenters were:
- David Baker, Missouri Assistive Technology
- Katie Hanley, Oak Hill Centers
- Ed Holen, Washington state Developmental Disabilities Council
Over 26 users logged and called in from many different states, including Connecticut, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Washington state. Participants included family members, staff and leadership from direct support providers, and state system staff. Thank you to expert presenters and everyone who logged on!
