  1. Webinar: The Promise of Olmstead Status of Assistive Technology use in planning for the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities
    Feb 18, 2014
    A recent paper by Bryant, B. R., Soonwha, S., Minwook, O., & Bryant, D. (2012), on a study to identify and rate AT devices that are being used by individuals in group residential settings, found that a majority of respondents do not use AT. Many of the recent Department of Justice's American with Disability Act Olmstead settlement agreements have included AT assessment and services as part of state responsibilities. How are statewide AT programs assisting with AT service provision and planning for individuals with intellectual disabilities? This webinar hosted on 2/26/14 will explore the current status of transition efforts, available resources, and best practices. Presenters include Brian Bryant, PhD, Andy Winnegar, Southwest ADA Center, and Janice Carson, Director of the Idaho Assistive Technology Project.
