Workshop Goal

  • The goal of this Workshop is to smart-source our awesome community of AT professionals to develop Decision Trees/Algorithms to expand knowledge of AT, AT strategies, resources and to identify "red flags" to ensure appropriate referrals. Ultimately, we want to assist everyone in finding appropriate Assistive Technology strategies and solutions for individuals who are aging and individuals with dementia.
