Event announcement from Cincinnati UCEDD
Location: Online

This unique session will present two topics regarding technology supports:

Assistive Technology for Independence: Devices and Gadgets

In this section, presenters will discuss how technology can empower youth/young adults with disabilities to live a more connected and independent life and identify the things we use every day to increase independence with personal care and daily living tasks. Presenters will demonstrate how to use technology to support environmental adaptations and allow participation in recreational activities.

Speaker: Jared Hendricks from SafeinHome

Technology Supports for Independent Living: Smart Home and Technology Enabled Supports

In this section, presenters will identify ways in which technology helps individuals with DD to live independently in their own home/apartment and how technology helps to address the shortage of direct support professionals.

They will showcase how individuals and families can use technology to live independently while still having access to the supports they need, and provide examples of the technology that is available like sensors, two way talk devices, and more.

Speakers:   Colleen Osbun from Ohio at Home and Brian Hart and LADD
