Course Description: Caregivers and individuals with disabilities often are without a map when navigating the medical model for themselves or their families. This lack of direction is compounded when interfacing with team members that often do not have a personal frame of reference for disability, caregiving, and sometimes even parenting. As a result, discussions around choosing, obtaining, and using adaptive equipment are sometimes difficult. This presentation is powered by the practical experience of parents and kids as we examine conversations around assistive technology. Participants will gain insights into barriers that exist for kids and families as well as strategies to reduce obstacles through communication, education, and empowerment.
