INDATA and Easter Seals Crossroads

What: A “Demo Day” featuring devices that assist people with autism.

When: Friday, July 16, 2010

Where: Easter Seals ARC, 4919 Coldwater Road Fort Wayne, Indiana

Why: The “Demo Day” gives individuals who make an appointment the opportunity to experience an abbreviated one-on-one device demonstration, during which they learn how assistive technology can increase independence through a hands-on session with the many low-tech and high-tech assistive technology devices available.

A variety of devices will be demonstrated, with a particular emphasis on autism, including: touch screens, adaptive keyboards, trackballs, Visual and Schedule Assistant and some communication devices.
