DIY AT for the New Normal
COVID-19 pushed the fast forward button on distance and e-learning. Quickly we found out we weren’t as prepared in AT as we thought we were for solving AT issues at home. How can DIY AT help? How can we help parents with AT solutions at home? How can we assist therapists, teachers, and other educators with AT solutions during times of e-learning? Come learn about creative and innovative solutions for using assistive technology in the home DIY environment as well as resources for providing virtual AT services. During this presentation we will show how DIY AT can benefit you in times of distance learning, emergencies, and especially in your daily practice and therapeutic environments.

Session level: Beginner/Intermediate
Session duration: 1-hour
