2021 Conference

Policy Round Table: Assistive Technology

Session Date: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm CDT

*This session is open only to State OIB Program Managers* 

How does your program handle the provision of assistive technology devices? Do you have policies or procedures that guide your staff? In this session, we will look at the federal definition of assistive technology, share how we handle the distribution of devices, and consider if our programs can improve efficiencies in this area of our services.
