33rd Annual Conference

The most practical, practitioner-driven AT conference in North America!

This year's conference builds on a tradition of providing a comprehensive examination of the most current uses of technology by persons with disabilities and the professionals who work with them.

Topics will cover a broad spectrum of technology as it is being applied to all disabilities and age groups in education, rehabilitation, vocation, and independent living.

Come and learn, first-hand, about the products and best AT practices and strategies by and for teachers, therapists, clinicians, parents and end users alike.

Since attending the conference, I am no longer intimidated, but exhilarated!


Loved every minute of it - from preconference to the end. Fantastic!
