Training Title: Assistive Technology Guide: A Team Approach and the DSP’s Role
Training Description: For most of us technology makes things easier, but for a person with a disability, it makes things possible. In this workshop, you will learn about Assistive Technology (AT) and hear stories about how AT has helped people achieve greater independence and community inclusion. You will be given a new AT resource guide along with strategies for using it to help get the right AT for people you support. In addition, we’ll talk about some of the common barriers and strategies for supporting a person with AT. The goal is that you leave this workshop feeling empowered to get someone the tools and support they need for greater independence!
