Tennessee Association for Assistive Technology Conference 2017 (TAAT)


November 30- December 1, 2017, Franklin, TN


Students are being introduced almost daily to new technologies in the classroom, many of which may serve the special needs of our students with physical, intellectual, and/or learning disabilities.  Technology access continues to increase and evolve, modifying the scope of what can be considered an ‘assistive technology’. Educators and clinicians working with this population must receive regular professional development training to learn to use these tools to modify the environment and the curriculum.  Now in its 12th year, the TAAT Conference has annually offered 46 hours of instruction over one and one-half days to teachers, administrators, therapists and technology specialists from across the state.
