The Idaho Assistive Technology Project (IATP) at the University of Idaho Center on Disabilities and Human Development (CDHD) is proud to announce March 27 as National Assistive Technology Awareness Day by the U.S. Congress.
To recognize National Assistive Technology Awareness Day the IATP will host an open house from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, at CDHD, 1187 Alturas Drive, Moscow. IATP staff will be on hand to demonstrate equipment, display a variety of assistive technology devices and provide information and resources.
On March 11, 2019, Congress passed a resolution designating March 27, 2019, as National Assistive Technology Awareness Day.
In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 1 in 4 people in the U.S., or almost 61 million individuals, has a disability. The Idaho Assistive Technology Project has been providing assistive technology solutions in Idaho since 1992. The IATP is a federally funded project designed to increase access to and awareness of assistive technology with the mission of “making technology the great equalizer.”
