Description

We are delighted to announce that our next CHAT will take place at IHREC, Dublin on Monday 29th April at 11.00am.

The Spring CHAT will be themed “Accessible Technology supporting Rights”. The agenda will include how AT can support UNCRPD, Accessibility Act, Assisted Decision Making, Voting and European and local elections and more. If you are involved in using AT to support rights, we would love to hear from you. If there is anything you want to be added to the programme or have any ideas that would be of interest, please get in touch.

IHREC is an accessible state-of-the-art, flexible space in the IHREC and they also have a changing places facility https://www.ihrec.ie/changing-places.

To all of those who are new to our mailing list CHAT (Community Hub for Accessible Technology) is a community of practice of Assistive Technology Practitioners and Assistive Technology Users that connects the Assistive Technology sector in Ireland like never before.

CHAT is run by FreedomTech, a collaboration between DFI and Enable Ireland. CHAT aims to raise the profile of Assistive Technology in Ireland. CHAT helps to raise awareness about the barriers that currently exist (inaccessibility) and facilitates the sharing of new assistive technology solutions or projects to the community. CHAT is your place to share, listen, learn and build partnerships with others who are interested in supporting independence through the use of technology.

People from a wide variety of backgrounds are involved in CHAT. We are, people with disabilities (expert and non-expert assistive technology users), developers, assistive technology professionals, researchers, suppliers, third level institutions as well as mainstream and disability specialist service providers and professional therapists and other interested parties. CHAT facilitates and creates opportunities amongst members to learn from each other and makes the most of members’ expertise to identify real challenges, gaps and to consider solutions.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 29th of April in Dublin.
