Topic Information:
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 22nd at 3:00 Eastern, to learn about the involvement of state AT Act programs in their state’s telecommunications equipment distribution (TED) programs and the National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) also known  as ICanConnect.  Administration of these programs is one of several ways that may be a part of the State Plan for Assistive Technology “state financing” activity for states.

Sandi McNally, director of the Pennsylvania’s AT Act program (known as TechOWL) and current chair of the national organization known as TEDPA (Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program Association) and Stacy Brady of Missouri Assistive Technology will share information including the expansion of these programs from wired phones such as amplified or captioned telephones to wireless phones and tablets.
