Tennessee Disability Pathfinder (Pathfinder) wraps up its 2020-2021 Webinar Series with Navigating the Path to Assistive/Enabling Technology
Resources, a webinar that seeks to create a better understanding of, and access to, assistive/enabling technology.
Assistive technology is defined as any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product that increases, maintains, or improves the capabilities of individuals with disabilities. Pathfinder is offering this webinar for participants to learn more about services and resources available throughout the state of Tennessee. Hearing directly from professionals associated with the agencies providing the assistive/enabling technology services allows participants to gain additional insight about the various programs and criteria for qualifying for them. It also enables participants to connect directly with the presenting agencies compared to simply visiting a website or reading a brochure.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Featured presenters are Megan Hart, program director, Tennessee Disability Pathfinder; Kim Lilley, executive director, Tennessee Technology Access Program; Milton Neuenschwander, state director of enabling technology, Department of Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities; Greg Mitchell, outreach manager, Telecommunications Devices Access Program; and Ruth Hemphill, Library for Accessible Books & Media.
The webinar will be presented in English with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish. Registration for the webinar is required to receive the Zoom link. Click here to register.
