The Assistive Technology Conference of New England – hosted by TechACCESS of RI – 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.
In 2020, we made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference due to COVID-19. However, we recognize that we need support now more than ever as we struggle with the realities of our new normal. That is why we decided to host a conference consisting of half day sessions spanning months to allow people the flexibility to participate – from wherever they are!
