AT Expo 2012 – Wichita
RCIL is hosting a booth at the Assistive Technology Expo this year in Wichita. I am “manning” the booth to share with the participants my newly offered service, orientation and mobility. I have spoken to approximately 30 participants this far and explained some of the services RCIL has to offer.
Remember, assistive technology does not have to be something high tech and expensive. I have a range of items displayed at the booth. Items range from what I use during an orientation and mobility lesson, items that may be use to assess a person with low vision, and items I use during home visits for the iKan program (55 years and older who are blind or have low vision. Some items include a white cane, Trekker Breeze, check guide, bold line paper and much more.
I have not had a chance to explore all booths but from where I’m sitting it appears there is a booth on just about all disabilities. If you are in the Wichita area the expo is open until 7:00pm tonight and open until 3:00pm tomorrow.
