The 2018 Techsummit

Technology has influenced the lives of nearly everyone in one manner or another. Most of us take it for granted, perhaps not event noticing the extent to which our everyday activities are either completely reliant upon technological advancement or have just been made significantly easier. In an age where every year technology takes a more prominent role in our lives – it is imperative that we consider how technology may benefit individuals with developmental disabilities.

The 2018 TechSummit is a one day event that presents an opportunity for self-advocates, professionals, and family members to learn about ways the technology is being used and may be used in the near future to promote independence for people with developmental disabilities. The event features speakers from across the United States. These include experts in their field, self-advocates and family members who can share their personal testimony about the way that technology has influence their lives.
