Open Labs - Access Fairs

The Bridge School’s Open Labs - Access Fairs are great opportunities for professionals, students, and families to have hands-on experience with state-of-the art assistive technologies, adapted toys and games, and specialized software and equipment to enhance participation, communication, learning and recreation. At these Fairs, everyone will be encouraged to interact with professionals, peers, and children or adults who use the assistive technologies and to share their information and experiences with the group.

The Bridge School staff and family members will be providing ideas, demonstrations, guidance and hands on experience with a variety of the creative adaptations and solutions that open up new possibilities for individuals with access challenges.

This year, two separate events are scheduled and will focus on 1) adapted toys and games, and 2) commercially available assistive technologies. See schedule below. Everyone is welcome to come explore, play and learn!

AAC/AT Vendors

A vendor answers questions during the demo.

There is ample time to have hands on with the devices.

At the second Access Fair: AAC/AT Vendors, local and national vendors of devices to assist in communication and education will answer questions and have devices available for hands on. This will give you an excellent opportunity to explore the new technology, talk with representatives from the various manufacturing companies, and discuss your child/adult’s needs with people who are knowledgeable and who will be available for follow-up.

Vendors confirmed for the April 12, 2014 Access Fair: AAC/AT Vendors. Please check back for changes and/or additions.
