Tech:Fest Colorado

SAVE THE DATE: Oct. 17-18, 2019

Tech:Fest Colorado is being held in conjunction with the Coleman Institute Annual Conference on Cognitive Disabilities and Technology. Join 350+ attendees at both of these back-to-back events.

The Coleman Institute Annual Conference is being held on Oct 17th followed by Disability Cocoon’s Tech:Fest on Oct. 18th. Both events are held at the Westin Hotel in Westminster, CO (located between Denver and Boulder).

We are still working on the agenda and Tech:Fest content, but these events are sure to become “the superbowl” of disability technology solutions and ideas in 2019.

Tech:Solutions Intro | a Live Disability Technology Online Event

9:00am - 4:00pm CDT | 10:00am - 5:00pm EDT

Enabling technologies have the potential to transform how disability supports are defined, reduce the reliance on scarce DSP human resources, and mostly importantly fulfill everyone’s mission of improving autonomy and quality of life for people with various levels of ability. 

Join us for a one day online crash course on all things disability technology. This one day live online webinar is designed to give provider agencies, Case Managers, self-advocates, and families a fast moving glimpse at:

+ why we must all start incorporating tech in everyday services and supports for people with disabilities
+ 20 cutting-edge disability tech solutions you can implement today
+ possibilities that are enabled with the appropriate application of technologies

This one-day online Tech:Solutions event is an opening educational opportunity for providers in Sedgwick County, KS as a part of Disability Cocoon's year long Enabling Technologies Pilot project. This online event is open to everyone involved with, or interested in, disability services and supports (people outside of Sedgwick County KS are welcome).

New to tech? This is designed specifically for you. 

Join us for the entire day, or come and go as needed based upon your schedule.
