The Impact of Assistive Technology on Function
Recorded: April 25, 2020 – Assistive Technology (AT) is a universal part of life and can be essential in the lives of adults with disabilities as they function at home, in the community and at work. Keeping up to date with emerging innovations in AT for people with disabilities can be challenging for OT providers.
