Enabling Technology is the use of various forms of devices and tech to support a person with disabilities to live as independently as possible. These types of technologies include sensors, mobile applications, remote support systems, medical dispensers, and other smart devices. Enabling Technology can support a person in navigating their jobs and communities, gain more control of their environment, and provide remote support and reminders to assist a person in independent living. The Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities has produced a number of videos that illustrate how Enabling Technology has helped specific individuals, people like Carl, Brad, and Eric. Our speaker will be DIDD's Enabling Technology Champion Kate Adams, who in addition to telling you about more resources than you ever knew existed, will also answer your questions about how to best access smart devices and how to go about determining what might serve your loved one's needs best. We'll meet from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at the community center of Hillsboro Village's Belmont United Methodist Church at 2007 Acklen Avenue, Nashville, TN 37212.
