Throughout January 2021, ANCOR collaborated with the Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities at the University of Colorado to conduct a survey of providers of supports and services to people with I/DD in an effort to identify promising practices and strategies to enhance technology use by people with I/DD and their families across the US. The survey also looked at use of technology during COVID-19 as a key step toward advocating on behalf of modern technology policies, research and practices.
While the final report from the survey won’t be released until late Spring 2021, we invite you to join us on March 29 for a sneak preview of the survey’s preliminary results.
