AbleData hosts AT Palooza via Twitter from May 27th until May 29th!

Beginning on Wednesday, May 27th, 2015 at 9 a.m. AbleData is hosting their first AT Palooza (#ATpalooza) via Twitter through Friday, May 29th at 11 p.m. EDT. Over the three-day event, assistive technology (AT) experts and AbleData staff will share information, resources, and research on AT. The #ATpalooza provides an opportunity for individuals to submit questions, comments, and suggestions for AT, do-it-yourself solutions, and other ways to support and promote AT. You can follow AbleData on Twitter at @AT_Info and use the #ATPalooza hashtag to follow and contribute to the discussion.

In our previous collaborations with AbleData assisting in the collection of AT Literature and DIY articles NARIC has come across a variety of online AT and do-it-yourself resources:
