The Richard West Assistive Technology Advocacy Center (ATAC) of Disability Rights New Jersey (DRNJ) serves as New Jersey’s federally funded assistive technology project through a sub-contract with New Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Its purpose is to assist individuals across New Jersey in overcoming barriers in the system and making assistive technology more accessible to individuals with disabilities throughout the state of New Jersey.
Over the last two days, we had our online conference Linking Information about Learning Disabilities in partnership with LDA of New Jersey. We could not have done this conference without the amazing people at ATAC! They set up all of our session rooms and the related handouts and Session Notes. They also coordinated each room and provided tech support for troubleshooting for speakers, vendors, and attendees. If you attended the conference, please take a minute to stop by the DRNJ page on Facebook and post a little thank you for all their work at our conference and include #thankyouATAC.
LDA of MI and LDA of NJ work so that the causes of learning disabilities will be understood and addressed and so individuals with learning disabilities can thrive and participate fully in society. We send special thanks to all those at ATAC for helping us in this work. We are definitely stronger together!
