ATIA Educational Webinar Series

This announcement from Lauren Tappan:
The Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) announces a new Educational Webinar series!

The goal of the ATIA Webinar Series is to increase awareness of the innovative assistive technologies and services that enhance learning, working, and independence for people with disabilities.

This series is targeted at educators, rehab professionals, assistive technology specialists, individuals with disabilities and their families, and others who are looking to broaden their knowledge of assistive technology and the evaluation skills needed to assess the products.  The webinars offer a variety of topics including four which provide a “preview” of full-day Pre-Conference Seminars scheduled in October in Chicago.

For only $39 each, pick the one or several sessions which can enhance your learning!  CEU credits are provided.  And the webinar fee is discounted off registration for the associated Pre-Conference Seminar if you attend both! Click here for complete webinar details.
