The world around is evolving at an astounding rate. Assistive Technology, or AT, has been foundational in this evolution and a catalyst for positive life-changing results for individuals with disabilities. AT can increase opportunities for education, social interactions, and employment especially when there is a focus on technology like tablets, apps, wearables and robotics. During this session participants will have the opportunity to learn about how mobile technologies are assisting individuals with vision loss. They will have the opportunity to see apps that can assist with reading, writing, organization, and GPS. Participants will also get the chance to interact and try our other technologies that can assist with vision including wearable technologies and robotics.
