Exciting Opportunity -NYSACRA will be hosting an all day workshop on Assistive Technology with SimplyHome

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce assistive technologies and how they can be used to empower individuals to live more independently within their community.  The way people are supported is ever evolving toward solutions that maximize independence and community living.   We will demonstrate how organizations can integrate assistive technologies to improve care options and models of support while enhancing lifestyle choices and self-determination for the individuals they serve.    

Topics will include:

  • Current available technology options
  • How technology fits in the Person Centered Model
  • Best practices and ethical considerations for implementing technology
  • How technology can facilitate implementation of the HCBS Final Rule
  • Example policies and procedures for utilizing technology
  • How to assess an individual's needs when considering technology supports
  • Example implementations and service models
