Description


We are delighted to announce that our next CHAT will take place at Microsoft, Leopardstown on Wednesday 19th June at 10.30am.

This CHAT will explore “How Assistive Technology can be the ticket to Work for people with disabilities?". If you are involved in AT in employment, we would love to hear from you. If there is anything you believe should be added to the programme or have any ideas that would be of interest, please get in touch.

The Microsoft One Building we hope is fully accessible but we would appreciate if you could let us know if you have any support requirements.

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 19th of June at Microsoft.
