Let’s Go Skills will join CHAT’s (Community Hub for Assistive Technology) next meeting Tuesday April 7th. The call will offer everyone involved in Assistive Technology in Ireland a chance to come together and discuss the following three opening questions:
1. What is the greatest unmet need that you are coming across/experiencing regarding access to technology and assistive technology for people with disabilities?
2. How can we work together to meet some of those needs? To share innovations and solutions?
3. What innovations and opportunities have you developed or identified that you can share?
The intention is to gather issues from the ground and create an open self-organising space to work on some of these issues, avoid duplication of effort and support shared learning. We want to ensure that people with disabilities are not left behind or further disadvantaged during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prof Mac MacLachlan, National Clinical Lead for Disability Services, HSE, and Co-Director of the ALL Institute, Maynooth University has agreed to say a few words at the opening of the meeting.
