The Byte Size Lunch Series: Making Assistive Technology work for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Presented in partnership with The Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center

From the smart phone in your pocket to smart home thermostats, assistive technology is everywhere! But it can sometimes feel hard to know how or where to start exploring all the options and putting them into practical use. Thankfully, we?re here to help people with and without disabilities explore high, low, and no-tech solutions

In easy-to-understand ‘bite size’ lunchtime conversations, we’ll show how to use these solutions in the home, the office, and in the community! Each 45-minute session will highlight one specific topic, demonstrate tools, and leave plenty of time to answer your questions.

Come explore the possibilities for yourself and others. You can register for one, two or more sessions.
