Abstract: 

Access to technology, including the independent use of tablets, phones, and computers is an integral part of everyday life. For individuals with a disability, access to these devices can be challenging, which can prevent them from participation in daily roles and occupations. This workshop will describe and demonstrate how to setup and utilize the built-in accessibility features of consumer devices as well as the dedicated assistive technology devices to improve overall independence with participation in technology.
