We are so excited to be joining our NIDILRR grantee colleagues at Festival ADA at the National Museum of American History! We’ll be there tomorrow (Saturday) from 12 to 2:30 with some great samples of grantee publications available from our collection. Here’s a sample of what else you might find:
Try out GPII.net from the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Universal Interface and Information Technology Access.The purpose of the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is to ensure that everyone who faces accessibility barriers due to disability, literacy, digital literacy, or aging, regardless of economic resources, can access and use the Internet and all its information, communities, and services for education, employment, daily living, civic participation, health, and safety.
Take a spin on the Wheel of Justice from the ADA National Network! Spin to learn more about the history of the landmark civil rights legislation and your rights and responsibilities under the ADA. This is the perfect opportunity to sign on to the ADA Pledge!
Do you use ASL? Are you a teacher who works with Deaf students? Would you like to use ASL in your classroom materials? MyASLTech may be just the tool you’re looking for! The suite of tools includes ASL dictionaries, a sign generator, a concept generator, games and quizzes, and more! Stop by and talk to the folks from IDRT (based right here in Silver Spring) about MyASLTech and ask about their work in Morocco (trust us, it’s cool stuff).
How can you get the most out of a map if you can’t see? Take a look at these talking and tactile maps developed by Touch Graphics and the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center Develop and Evaluate Technology for Low Vision, Blindness, and Multi-Sensory Loss at the Smith Kettlewell Institute!
We hope to see you there tomorrow!
