Welcome to the newest creation from Assistive Technology of Ohio – the Ohio Disability Blog!
Assistive Technology of Ohio (AT Ohio) is part of the College of Engineering at The Ohio State University. We are Ohio’s Assistive Technology Act program and all of the service we offer help people learn about the ways that technology can improve the lives of Ohioans with disabilities. Technology can play such a major role in helping people with disabilities succeed in school, compete in the workplace and lead more independent and inter-connected lives.
On the Ohio Disability Blog, we hope to:
- Educate Ohioans about the latest developments affecting people with disabilities.
- Spotlight new and emerging technologies that help people with disabilities in the areas of education, employment and community living
- Highlight Ohioans who are on the frontlines, helping improve the lives of Ohioans with disabilities, every day.
We hope to become Ohio’s online home to discuss issues of upmost importance to Ohio’s disabilities community. And for us, that includes everyone: people with visual impairments, hearing impairments, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities – everyone. They can also come from every disability-related system in Ohio: Developmental Disabilities, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, Aging, the Veterans Administration, Workers’ Compensation… you name it.
We will be utilize some the best and most experienced talent in the state on disability issues. We will be interviewing Ohio’s disability leaders. And we will be letting you know how you can get involved and engaged in helping improve the lives of Ohioans with disabilities.
