TEC Doesn't Have To Be A Four Letter Word:  

When most people hear the word “technology”, they immediately think of expensive and complex devices like smartphones, tablets, and laptops. While these devices are amazing in their own right there are many other forms of technology that can offer increased independence to people with disabilities. And, with budget shortfalls, we find the need to be more creative than ever with our limited dollars. 

Technology is about Enhancing Capabilities (TEC). Solutions don’t have the be expensive or complex. They don’t have to be designed and built by technology experts. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to “roll up their sleeves” – to be guided through the process of building practical pieces of assistive technology using supplies that are available from their local hardware store. In addition to taking the devices built during this seminar home, attendees will be exposed to a number of commercially available products that address common challenges faced by people with disabilities.

Note:  The "in person" participants will have the hands-on experience described above while those participating in an online format will only see demonstration of the items being created.
