WA Assistive Technology Workshop - Bringing Technology and Users Together

This exciting workshop will focus on Assistive and Information Technology and the emerging best practices on using technology to promote independence, communication, productivity and inclusion.

The workshop is intended for residential and vocational providers, VR and transition specialists in Washington State. Participants will learn:
  • How is technology being used by people with developmental disabilities?
