Happy Anniversary to the Americans with Disabilities Act! #DisabilityPride
Thank you to Kim Beckstead and the Utah Assistive Technology (AT) Act Program (UATP) for this wonderful window into learning to live differently with AT. (This guest post was first published at the UATP blog.)
Assistive technology is not always what we expect it to be.
TechOWL's TikTok channel is getting busy for the holidays!
Words of thanks from assistive technology (AT) users reminding us of the transformative power of AT and why everyone needs to know about their AT Act Program!
In honor of Deaf Awareness Month, let's remember that communication equity begins with asking a d/Deaf person how they prefer to communicate and making the effort to remove barriers, accommodate preferences, and avoid assumptions.
Today the provisions incorporated in the ADA are more obtainable than ever before in history thanks to advancements in assistive technology (AT), the increasingly ubiquitous nature of AT in common devices, and a growing awareness about the power of technology to empower lives.
AT3 Center is honored (and heartsick) to offer this tribute to Joy Smiley Zabala, Ph.D., who passed away July 1. Joy was a principal architect of contemporary AT practice.
Thank you to Ability Tools Program Manager Katherine Crowley for this timely advice (first posted at their program's Where It's AT blog) and helping us all to stay cool.
Today's the day we celebrate and share how assistive technology makes a difference every day for most everyone.
