Location: Webinar

On Thursday, January 21st, NCHAM will be hosting the webinar: “Discovering Affordable Technology Access for Families” Presented by: Tawny Holmes and Zainab Alkebsi

Abstract/description:

An increasing number of EHDI resources are becoming "green" (paperless) or virtual, but that means families with limited access to internet may be left in the dust. This presentation will share immediately usable information about free or affordable technology access that is available to families with lower socio-economic status. This technology access is required/funded by the federal government, and often is not common knowledge among early intervention professionals. Did you know that families may be qualified for free or $10 a month wireless internet? Did you know that parents may qualify for a $10 a month cell phone bill? Free iPads? This company-neutral presentation by a national advocacy organization is strictly focused on providing information on all major telecommunications companies' offers as mandated/provided by federal law. Come and learn more about teleintervention (including virtual learning, apps, webinars) and more wonderful electronic resources out there!

Learning Objectives:

· Parents and professionals will be able to list various avenues to receive affordable technology access.

· Participants will develop strategies for families to apply for technology access.

· Participants will locate relevant websites and companies where they can proceed with applications.
