What:  The Assistive Technology Expo is an exciting three-day event designed to increase awareness and provide current information on assistive technology.  Conference offerings include an exhibit hall (on 11/18/10 only) featuring over 60 vendors exhibiting the latest in assistive technology products and services, 40 concurrent sessions, a poster session and a Keynote address.

In addition, a pre-conference session will be offered on November 17 from 9:00-4:00 on Accessible Instructional Media:  Using Bookshare to Meet Your Students’ Needs.  The morning session will focus on assistive technologies.  We’ll look at what’s out there and how to align the technologies with students’ needs.  The afternoon session will focus on the Bookshare website as a source of free accessible instructional media (AIM).  Particpants will learn what Bookshare offers, how to sign up, how to download books, how to read the books, and where to get support.

Who: Each year between 550-700 registered participants from across the country attend the NC AT Expo and approximately 1300 attend the free Exhibit Hall.  Participants include: persons with disabilities, family members, teachers, therapists, Vocational Rehabilitation and Independent Living staff, rehabilitation counselors, employers, engineers, college professors, medical staff, college and university students, and authorized state purchasers.

About SimplyHome
We are an affiliation of care providers who have been providing supports for the disabled and elderly since 1990. While our goal of helping families and caregivers has remained the same from the beginning, we realized in 2003 that new technology would allow us to dramatically improve the quality of our service and reduce the cost to those in need. We developed the SimplyHome system with this in mind and have been expanding our offerings and services ever since. Today we work towards our mission of helping the aging and disabled populations nationwide from our offices in North Carolina and Wisconsin. We exist to serve families and caregivers by providing the tools and services needed to support those who wish to live independently at home. While this desire cannot always be fulfilled, we believe it is far more achievable with SimplyHome by your side. In essence, we help you create a "Supportive Home" environment for the one you care for by providing easy-to-use assistive technology and services. When you come to us, we will engage in a conversation about your caregiving requirements, and if appropriate, offer you a personalized system that improves the quality of care for both you and the one you care for -- whether you are a family member or professional caregiver. Sometimes, after a detailed assessment, we find our systems are not the best support for you. If we feel a company offering different services could better serve you, we will make that recommendation. It's as simple as that.
