Among the areas to be focused on will be:
- The roles and activities of Assistive Technology Act Programs.
- Accessible materials and websites for transportation options.
- Assistive Technology for individual use and vehicle modifications.
- AT/Accessible transportation partnerships.

Why is this important?
Assistive technology (AT) enables people to live healthy, productive, independent and dignified lives, and to participate in civic life, education, and employment and utilizing AT related to transportation is a key element in fuller community participation for all. The webinar will include time for Q&A and discussion. If you have questions you’d like to submit in advance of the webinar, you may also do so at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
