Assistive Technology, or AT as it is commonly called, encompasses a wide variety of low- and high-tech devices and services. Participants in this workshop will learn about a variety of everyday devices to help maintain functional capabilities. Imagine you are unable to hear the television, or you suffer from memory loss and repeatedly forget to take your medication. Maybe you have lost your peripheral vision or suffered a stroke and now have trouble communicating. Maybe the arthritis in your hands makes it difficult to cook or garden. These are only a few examples of situations where AT can help. In addition to exploring and touching the wide variety of devices available to assist with functional limitations, participants will learn about a sampling of apps available to help with vision, hearing, communication and memory tasks.
