About The Conference
The Technology for Independence (T4I) Conference showcases Assistive Technology (AT) related research and service innovation across health, education, employment and daily living.
T4I, aims to reflect the evolving and innovative ways that technology can transform independence for those with disabilities. The emphasis is on sharing practice, research and evidence, innovation and service delivery.
The conference offers both AT practitioners and researchers the opportunity to present to a unique multidisciplinary audience and the chance to meet and share knowledge with other people working in the field. AT users can share their experiences of AT and their wants for the AT of today and tomorrow.
