  1. Tabling at your next conference or event: Ask us to set up an informational display or equipment demonstration at your next outreach event such as an open house, support group, conference or exhibition. We can bring a variety of assistive technologies that might be relevant to your target audience and provide them with information about how to access our services.
  2. Group Presentation (1-1.5 hours): the Vermont Assistive Technology Program is available to do an overview of 1) the core services of our program, 2) of what assistive technology is, and 3) an overview of some relevant examples of assistive technology. This is a great way to introduce assistive technology either to your organizations staff, or to consumers and families that you work with.
