NADD 35th Annual Conference & Exhibit Show-2018

October 31 – November 2, 2018 Seattle, WA


Special Session:

Technology Creates Connection & Independence (2:15-3:45 on November 1, 2018)

In this session, hear how one provider in Alaska has rapidly incorporated technology into their service model to empower people with disabilities to live more independently. Based in Juneau, REACH provides both services and advocacy to people with disabilities. Their overall goal is to ensure the people they serve and other fellow Alaskans are safe and are taken care of in the homes they want to be in.

Hear from them about how their clients’ concerns with medication compliance, cooking safety, and falls are being addressed through solutions with voice prompts, door sensors with real-time notifications, and wearable pendants. REACH is able to obtain data from the technology to give guardians and care coordinators more peace of mind, knowing that the people they care for are okay and can be checked on if there is a concern. As a result, people are living in the environment that is their first choice. Read about how they are doing it at REACH.

About Reinventing Quality

The Reinventing Quality conference started in 1991, sponsored by the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Research and Training Center on Community Living at the University of Minnesota. The first few conferences were held in Chicago, and then the meeting started to circulate around the country. In the fall of 1999, NASDDDS was awarded a three-year grant by the federal Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to gather and disseminate "best practice" information on individualized, person-centered supports and related quality management activities. This "Reinventing Quality" project was carried out in collaboration with the Research and Training Center on Community Living, one the nation's premier disability research and training centers, and the Human Services Research Institute, a policy research firm specializing in mental health and developmental disabilities issues.

Among the activities supported by this grant was the sponsorship of nationwide conferences to showcase best practices in person-centered supports from across the nation: The Reinventing Quality Conference. Although the project's funding ended in the fall of 2003, biennial conferences traditionally held in Baltimore, MD have continued under the direction of the original project collaborators along with several other national partners.
