It's Just Tech ... An Interactive Tech Training for Providers and Caretakers Working with the IDD Community


Series Description

Technology is a tool that we all use to navigate our schedules, and homes and allows us access to information- this is not innovative – it is a way of life that many people take for granted. For others, such as people living with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities it can be a vehicle that can provide greater independence and increased choice. This series of micro- trainings will focus on how to use existing technology to create solutions for people living with IDD. This is a hands-on training that will demonstrate how to teach individuals living with IDD how to use mainstream technology to support individualized needs. Participants are encouraged to bring real-life examples of current needs (including their current technology). 

This micro-series of trainings was held bi-weekly, Thursday afternoons from 1:00 pm MST - 1:30 pm MST.
