RESNA is authorized by IACET to offer 1.4 CEUs for the course. 
 
The course uses multiple case studies to illustrate applications of principles and theories in assistive technology provision, and provides an overview of different technologies. The areas covered include, among others:
  • seating and positioning
  • mobility
  • augmentative and alternative communication
  • computer access
  • sensory technologies
  • electronic aids to daily living

The instructors are Jerry Weisman, M.S.M.E, ATP, RET, the owner and principal of Rehabilitation Technology Services, and Barbara Crane, PhD, PT, ATP, the coordinator of the Wheelchair Assessment Service at Gaylord Hospital in Connecticut. Both are RESNA Fellows and certified ATPs.
