The INDATA Project sponsored an Assistive Technology and Cerebral Palsy Training on February 19. This event was an open invitation to anyone wanting to know more about the available resources surrounding Cerebral Palsy.
Not only was the event well attended with over 60 guests, but we also tested our fancy camera equipment and produced a live stream online!
Donna Roberts from the United Cerebral Palsy of Indianapolis was our first speaker, followed by our own Dr. Chuck Dietzen, the Medical Director at Easter Seals Crossroads, and Wendy Gahimer, an Augmentative Communication Specialist at Easter Seals Crossroads. We were also fortunate to have vendors from Tobii ATI and Dynavox Mayer-Johnson display their assistive technology devices.
The training was very much a success. Our attendants were excited to hear about the advancements being made in robotic therapy from Donna Roberts, touched by Dr. Chuck’s stories about patients he’s treated during his career, and had a chance to try out several assistive technology devices during Wendy’s hands-on demonstration. We also received some very helpful feedback from folks watching our livestream.
This was one of four trainings INDATA offers each year. If you would be interested in attending future trainings, you can follow us on Twitter, friend us on Facebook, or sign up for our email list. If you have questions or comments, feel free to contact Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
