Public Awareness Activities

The Illinois Assistive Technology Program regularly participates in exhibits at health fairs, conferences and expos. Staff take a variety of assistive technology for visitors to view and information about IATP’s programs. Staff also provide presentations to groups looking for general information about assistive technology and/or the Illinois Assistive Technology Program. Presentations can be designed to meet specific needs.

Scheduled public awareness events can be found under the Events header. Due to COVID-19, we do not have any in-person events scheduled. However, IATP can provide presentations and virtual tours of our Demonstration Center via video conferencing. We can also accommodate in-person small group tours.
