All five Ohio Tech Ambassadors, listed below, will be giving a panel presentation at 2021 Developmental Disability Awareness and Advocacy Day on Tuesday, March 2 at 10 AM representing each of their specific regions. This will be streamed live on Facebook Live Streaming at the Developmental Disability Awareness & Advocacy Day Facebook Page at: https://www.facebook.com/OhioDDAwareness
The Southern Ohio Council of Governments (SOCOG) recently launched the Ohio Tech Ambassador Network, a program promoting how adaptive technology use enhances lives and independence for people with developmental disabilities. Five Tech Ambassadors have been selected statewide to discuss how they use supportive technology at home, at school, at work and in the community.
Tech Ambassadors will share their personal experiences through virtual peer-to-peer mentoring events scheduled through June 2021. Service providers, family members, mentors and individuals with developmental disabilities will have the opportunity to hear from the Tech Ambassadors firsthand about their own experiences, learn more about adaptive technologies that are available today and ask questions live.
