Oregon Technology Access Program (OTAP) offers a variety of Assistive Technology-related topics, which are customizable; to meet your training needs. These topics may be delivered face-to-face, virtually, or a combination of both methods. Workshops are provided at no cost to the host. Following is a list of current offerings. Please contact us to discuss your needs and your vision.
Registration is still open for a free, one-hour webinar on May 3, led by award-winning national speaker and author Phyl Macomber.
Author, speaker and educator Linda Karges-Bone will present a full-day workshop on Sept. 22 in Salem to teach the fundamentals of grant-writing for educators.
The workshop is designed to help teachers and districts secure funding for assistive technology and other special needs. Organizers describe it as “ideal for small groups who are interested in bringing funding to their creative ideas.”
Please download before you arrive
This year we will not have paper copies of handouts available at the Conference. You are asked to download the handouts for the session(s) you are registered for. You can either view them on your device during the session or print paper copies before you arrive. Whichever way works best for you!
The OTAP newsletter is published two to three times a year. It includes notices of training opportunities, new additions to the loan library and other news of interest about technology for children with disabilities.
OTAP develops and disseminates assistive technology publications covering a wide range of topics for individuals with disabilities, their family members, professionals in the field of disability, and other interested parties. OTAP publications are available online, or requested by calling our office to be sent via mail. All publications are available in alternative formats, upon request.
Grants of assistive technology are awarded to children with disabilities in Oregon ages two to twenty. Equipment is loaned on a long-term basis to families (i.e., until outgrown or no longer needed). Requested equipment must be needed at home but may also be used at school. The Board of Directors of the Coalition for Assistive Technology (CATO) meets in October, January and April to review applications and make equipment awards.
