Marcia J. Scherer, President of the Institute for Matching Person and Technology (http://matchingpersonandtechnology.com ), recently gave an 80-minute webinar on assistive and cognitive support technologies for the Military Families Learning Network (http://blogs.extension.org/militaryfamilies/) . The presentation covers how to define assistive and cognitive support technologies, key resources for locating relevant products and local resources, and identifying the AT needs of veterans with a variety of disabilities. The PowerPoint slideshow from the webinar is available at the Network’s website: http://www.slideshare.net/milfamln/military-caregiving-assistive-technology-devices, while the actual presentation, including the slideshow, can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0NOmVM0zVM&list=UUBEYWdqWEmaJSfNUzuRKUGw. The Military Families Learning Network is supported by U.S. federal dollars (Department of Defense and Department of Agriculture); therefore, the webinar is freely available for use in educating and training individuals about AT and CST.
