Assistive Technology Open House

AT Maker Open HouseOn September 22, 2018, our graduate class, Assistive Technology for Communication and Cognitive Impairments, will be completing a one-day hands-on experiential activity using various AT devices. We are opening our lab, room 139 at Hewitt Hall, to the public. There isn’t a formal class or workshop being offered during this time, however there will be stations in which people can come and explore various devices. These stations are focused on technology for cognitive impairments, executive functioning impairments and communication impairments. We welcome families, service providers, and prospective students to stop in anytime between 1:00pm-4:00pm. We do however ask that you let us know if you're planning to come by emailing Stacy Driscoll at
