Author: TechKnowledgy Conference
Description: You are now entering the Virtual TechKnowledgy Conference area for practitioners and families interested in learning more about using assistive technology with all children and youth with disabilities. We hope you will visit as many of the AT sessions as possible. You will notice each AT session specifies an approximate completion time and includes an evaluation. The evaluation is required in order to receive a certificate of participation. You may want to print your certificate and attach it to a printed copy of the conference program thus verifying your conference participation. Enjoy the conference!
