Location: Auditorium, Crescent Building

Abstract: Even with appropriate legislation, services, and support, many areas of the world continue to significantly underestimate the potential of individuals with disabilities. There is a tremendous need to appreciate and focus upon the many talents and gifts that university students with challenges have and how they can contribute to society, becoming extremely productive citizens. An innovative approach to self-advocacy combined with assistive technologies, including mobile apps, can make a difference to achieve this goal.
