RESNA Standards Committee on Cognitive Technologies (CT)

 

The RESNA Standards Committee on Cognitive Technologies (CT) has been formed to create accessibility standards that will make technologies easier to use for people with cognitive impairment.  The second meeting of this committee will take place in conjunction with the annual conference of the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities (http://www.colemaninstitute.org) on October 13, 2011, The Westin Westminster Hotel, Westminster, Colorado, 6:00 - 8:00. The committee is open for membership, and non-members with an interest can attend. There are opportunities for virtual attendance.
