Community Based Demonstrations
Through community based demonstrations, Assistive Technology Partners provides interactive opportunities to learn about assistive technology devices and applications.
The following opportunities are FREE of charge and open to the public:
Manufacturer Seminars are provided by individual company representatives on specific products. These seminars are ongoing and scheduled on our event calendar. Contact ATP to find out more information.
Device demonstrations include an explanation of the function of the assistive technology devices or software as well as an overview of how it assists a consumer with a disability. The intent is for individuals to have “guided exploration” of a specific device or category of devices that may clarify the advantages that technology can offer. Demonstrations occur several times each year at community venues. Visit our events page or Facebook page to learn more. Additionally, an individual may contact any of the Assistive Technology Centers with questions about devices or to schedule an appointment to learn more about technology and services available to meet specific needs.
Student Open Houses are held bianually in an effort to cultivate the interest of college students in assistive technology. The event begins with a half hour broad overview of assistive technology and a discussion of who might benefit from the use of assistive technology. A tour of the clinic follows including specialized device demonstrations and continues interactive discussion on implementation of AT in a variety of settings. Please see our event calendar to find the next program. Call 303-315-1280 for more information or to RSVP for a Student Open House.
Community Open Houses are open to the larger community including consumers and their family members, advocates, employers, service providers and educators. Demonstrations include an explanation of the function of AT devices as well as instruction in their use. The intent is for individuals to have “guided exploration” of a specific device or category of devices that may clarify the advantages that technology can offer. Please see our events calendar to find the date and time of the next Community Open House and Technology Demonstration. These events are free of charge and are open to everyone.
Assistive Technology Partners Booths can frequently be found at public events hosted by other non-profit agencies to assist in educating the community and increasing public awareness about assistive technology. To best meet the specific need of the intended audience, an educational display is staffed by the Assistive Technology Partner’s faculty member who can best speak to the needs and options for this group. Visit our events calendar or Facebook page to learn which events will be attended.
