This presentation focuses on technology-based solutions for individuals with disabilities facing the demands of living and working in the 21st century world. With the explosion of apps, devices, web-based technologies, and similar innovations, individuals, their families, and their network of caregivers have a variety of options to consider and thus, employ. This session will focus on exploring solutions through the various demands that the home, workplace, post-secondary educational environment, and the community place on individuals with disabilities. Participants will leave with a variety of solutions including lists of apps, guides on how to find the right one, and tools to use when they return home to further empower individuals in their varied environments across the day and busy week.
