IATP welcomed approximately 300 visitors to its new home at 701 North Walnut Street, Springfield, Il, for its 2023 Open House and Building Dedication. IATP officially moved to the new location in late 2022. The new facility allowed for the expansion of established programs and the introduction of new programs.
Guests were able to tour the 52,000 square foot building and learn about all IATP programs. Visitors enjoyed hands-on access to a large inventory of assistive technology in the Demonstration Center and Smart Home Center, witnessed the creation of specialized assistive technology in the Makerspace, experienced the fully accessible Tech Kitchen, and learned about our Reuse Program.
IATP thanks everyone who attended our 2023 Open House. Visitor remarks included:
- Thank you for the invite. I was like a kid in a candy store…
- Being able to see the equipment and software has been beneficial to me. I did not realize how many different types of Magnifying CCTV’s that are available.
- Your loaner program will also come in handy for us.
- I thoroughly enjoyed the open house tour last Wednesday, your team is to be commended for the outstanding work and service they provide to so many people. The redesign of the building is incredible and I like what has been done…
- We loved the whole open house. I was very impressed with the set up and everyone there. I had three littles with me who were very interested in everything. They asked lots of questions and each person working the stations were so patient and explained what the devices were used for and how they are used. What a wonderful place IATP is with an awesome staff! Thanks for having us.
