DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- The first annual Tech Supports for Cognition and Learning conference will take place at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry on Thursday, March 31, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Experts in the fields of technology, education and learning, clinical supports and direct service supports will gather together for the first time to explore the use of technology to support people with disabilities.
The experts will look for ways that maximize the independence of those with disabilities and overcome cognitive limitations.
The conference committee has gathered a strong list of speakers and presenters who will provide the most contemporary thinking about the use of technology and further explore currently available products that will allow supports for people with disabilities to be available with and without personal support personnel.
The intent of this conference is to engage and excite a community of thinkers who will continue to build bridges between technology and cognitive supports for people with disabilities.
Mercy College is at 555 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry.
