Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing, or other special needs!

On April 17, 2024 the U.S. Congress and the disability community will celebrate  National Assistive Technology (AT) Awareness Day. The day honors people with disabilities who require AT to access their education, workplace, community, and recreational activities. The day also recognizes the innovation of researchers, educators, and the dedication of AT specialists and program providers who operate AT programs so that millions of individuals can acquire and use low-cost and often no-cost AT.

We in the assistive technology community would like to thank Senators Kevin Cramer, John Fetterman and Bob Casey for introducing the AT Awareness Day Resolution! We appreciate your leadership in support of people w/disabilties to access AT in all parts of daily life!!
