Special Interest Groups

SIG members

Networking, information sharing, mentoring, mutual support, volunteerism and the joy of discovery are hallmarks of the RESNA member experience.

RESNA's Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are online member communities that promote information sharing, best practices, and referrals in a secure and confidential environment. You must be a member to join a SIG. The exception is the "International SIG," which accepts RESNA non-members. SIGs meet at the RESNA Annual Conference and are able to use a member only listserv.


The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) connect assistive technology professionals from diverse backgrounds to other members that share similar interests. Grouped around common themes and issues, the SIGs encourage an inter-disciplinary approach to information sharing, collaboration and connection.


SIG members join together to publish influential position papers, collaborate on conference workshops, and participate in professional development activities. Each SIG has its own communications forum, where members can pose questions, get immediate feedback, access resources, and collaborate.
