IL EXPO 2018

Independent Living Expo 2018, is being held on Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the Salem Civic Center. This is a FREE day of seeing, touching, trying and learning about the different types of assistive technology (AT) that can be used to help a person with a disability be independent. All people use some sort of technology but for people with disabilities AT provides equal access and helps them to perform functions that can be difficult or impossible.  Types of AT include augmentative communication devices, Bluetooth, phone apps, screen readers, wearable AT, environmental and vehicle modifications, computer software, self-care items and more.

Our hope is to bring information about services and devices together under one roof for people with disabilities, their families, caregivers, service providers and others to see, feel, try and learn how AT can support independent living.
