2010 Assistive Technology Expo

November 17 - 19, 2010

North Raleigh Hilton

What:  The Assistive Technology Expo is an exciting three-day event designed to increase awareness and provide current information on assistive technology.  Conference offerings include an exhibit hall (on 11/18/10 only) featuring over 60 vendors exhibiting the latest in assistive technology products and services, 40 concurrent sessions, a poster session and a Keynote address.

In addition, a pre-conference session will be offered on November 17 from 9:00-4:00 on Accessible Instructional Media:  Using Bookshare to Meet Your Students’ Needs.  The morning session will focus on assistive technologies.  We’ll look at what’s out there and how to align the technologies with students’ needs.  The afternoon session will focus on the Bookshare website as a source of free accessible instructional media (AIM).  Particpants will learn what Bookshare offers, how to sign up, how to download books, how to read the books, and where to get support.

Who: Each year between 550-700 registered participants from across the country attend the NC AT Expo and approximately 1300 attend the free Exhibit Hall.  Participants include: persons with disabilities, family members, teachers, therapists, Vocational Rehabilitation and Independent Living staff, rehabilitation counselors, employers, engineers, college professors, medical staff, college and university students, and authorized state purchasers.
