Our aim is to cultivate individual self-reliance and community empowerment by presenting workshops on DIY Assistive Technologies (AT). These AT workshops are for therapists, caregivers, and self-advocates throughout New Mexico and beyond. Rather than knowledge only flowing in one direction (from presenters to attendees), these workshops democratize learning through open discussion on issues and possible solutions. Thanks to everyone who has participated in our workshops. Many of our insights and AT ideas come from you!
Join our efforts to increase accessibility for ALL!
