Free and open to the public
Don’t miss the chance to see and try cutting-edge products and services for people with all types of disabilities and age-related limitations! This event is offered only once a year and is the only event of its kind in South Carolina.
Over 50 exhibits and 15 workshops are available, free of charge at the South Carolina Assistive Technology Expo on March 15, 2011 at the Columbia Conference Center.
Some workshop topics include: home and vehicle modifications, augmentative communication for people who have trouble speaking, iPad and iPod applications for students and for communication challenges, literacy and study supports for students, making electronic information accessible, and tools that help people with brain injury.
This year's Expo features another unique opportunity, free of charge.

Bring your non-electronic equipment like wheelchairs, walkers, commode chairs and bath chairs.
