The Assistive Technology Conference of New England – hosted by TechACCESS of RI – is dedicated to technology, people with disabilities, families and professionals.
In 2020, we made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference due to COVID-19. We again hosted the conference virtually for 2021-2022. Conference sessions consisting of half day and full day sessions spanning months to allow people the flexibility to participate – from wherever they are! Due to unforeseen circumstances, ATCNE 2022-2023 will be a combination of in-person and virtual workshops, in both full and half-day formats.
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.
