Technology can benefit all users – students, faculty, and staff. However, technology is not always accessible or adaptive for all. The Center for Disability Services here at the University of Utah provides adaptive and accessible software and technology to students with disabilities. Come learn how this technology benefits both students with disabilities as well as all users of technology. Topics covered include specific software packages, specialized hardware, and accessible web design.
Our speaker will be Scott M. McAward, Ph.D., the Director of the Center for Disability Services (CDS) and a Licensed Psychologist. At the University of Utah, CDS serves approximately 1,100 students with disabilities each academic year and is responsible for approving accommodations and providing adaptive software.
