Upcoming Webcast: Assistive Technology & Transition: Evaluation, Identification & Acquisition

April 6, 2009
2:00 - 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time
Opened Captioned
Cost: No Charge

Assistive Technology has become the greatest equalizer for people with disabilities in accessing pathways to community living, employment, post secondary education and more.

For students with disabilities and families it may not be clear who has responsibility for selecting, managing, and financing assistive technologies. Once a student leaves the confines of the protections of IDEA mandated services what happens to their Assistive Technology needs?

For some students, the only thing preventing successful transition is Assistive Technology.

Presenter, Dr. Joey Wallace is the Executive Director of the New Well Fund, an organization that provides low interest loans to individuals with disabilities in need of assistive technology. He has expert knowledge of policy and funding issues across the disability field. He provides training and technical assistance on assistive technology to organizations and individuals both locally and nationally.
