On the morning of Thursday, May 31, 2018, join the Northwest Universal Design Council, Age Friendly Seattle, Aging and Disability Services, and the Washington Assistive Technology Act Program to learn how to match functional needs of older adults and people with disabilities to a wide range of assistive technologies and DIY solutions. View demonstrations of a variety of assistive devices and explore creative low-cost options to assist with mobility, memory, hearing, vision, communication, and more. Participants will come away equipped to pass information on to other groups.
