Tools for Life: Your Assistive Technology Act Program!
American Council of Engineering Companies of Georgia (ACEC) of Georgia Inclusion & Diversity Task Force National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)
October 21, 2020
The world around us is evolving at an astounding rate. Assistive Technology, or AT, has been foundational in this evolution and a catalyst for positive life-changing results for individuals with disabilities. AT can increase opportunities for employment, community living, social interactions, safety, and home care, just to name a few, and can be a key component to independent living.
Come find out how your Assistive Technology Act Program in Georgia, Tools for Life, can help you help your clients!
Tools for Life increases independence for Georgians with disabilities by providing access to and acquisition of assistive technology devices and services. The TFL Network is fulfilling the intent of the Tech Act through core statewide activities. This session will look into the Tools for Life program, provide information on cutting edge smart home technologies, and explore how AT can support the aging population, as well as employees with disabilities. Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about AT best practices, AT services, and disability awareness so you and those you work with can benefit from these services to achieve independence.
