General Information

The Assistive Technology Conference of New England is dedicated to technology, people with disabilities, families and professionals.

Since 1988, Rhode Island’s annual conference on assistive technology has offered state-of-the-art workshops, information and exhibits on the technologies that enhance and change the lives of persons with disabilities of all ages. Attended each year by hundreds from Rhode Island, New England, and beyond, the conference focuses on uses of technology in education, communication, employment, recreation, home, and independent living.

In 2015, the conference became a 2-day event, featuring an extra day of more in-depth workshops presented by AT experts from all over the country.

Also in 2015, we added the Bringing Access to Life Expo.
