The National Association of Qualified Intellectual Disability Professionals will host the 2019 TEC (Technology Enhancing Capabilities) Conference on June 5, 2019, at the NIU Conference Center located in Naperville, IL:
“We've known that assistive technology should play an important part in the lives of people with disabilities for a long time. Now, more than ever, technology "levels the playing field" for people with disabilities - it promotes independence, breaks down barriers, and fosters inclusion.
The TEC Conference is no ordinary event - you'll have an opportunity to see, touch, and experience a variety of products as well as connect with experts who are willing to share their tips and tricks for the successful implementation of technology.”
Harold Sloves, the leader of Tennessee’s Enabling Technology Movement and supporting projects, will be the keynote speaker. He will lead a session entitled, “So You Want to be a Technology Provider – Do You Know Why?” He will share Tennessee’s journey in becoming a “Technology Now” state.
