Registration is now open for the inaugural Making AT for All Conference and Expo happening September 29, 2018! The Fair will bring together 200+ individuals from across the nation to develop innovative skills and create devices that maximize independence and participation for persons with disabilities.

Come to learn from AT maker-movement leaders and get hands-on (while earning CEUs). The Fair will provide the methods, materials, and know-how needed to efficiently create everyday solutions. This is a novel just-in-time approach to acquiring AT for use at school, home, work, and play.

The day will feature a Make AT Cafe makerspace, an AT Invention Contest, maker workshops, an exhibition hall of vendors/program booths and keynotes from Bill Binko, founder of ATMakers.org and Therese Willkomm, Ph.D., Director of ATinNH!

Who should attend?

Individuals with disabilities, family members, caregivers, educators, administrators, therapists, and program directors. Anyone interested in making assistive technology! Novice to veteran makers of all ages and abilities are welcome.
