  • Has served the assistive technology industry for nearly a quarter century.

For onsite presentations The OWAC Professional Development Workshop is a one day workshop designed for groups of 20-30 educators and/or rehabilitation professionals.

For remote presentations, The OWAC Professional Development Workshop is scalable to one half day virtual sessions for larger groups, as this format requires less hands-on training of assistive technologies. Virtual sessions require an internet connection and a means of connecting and projecting via a Skype video call. The same content is covered within both the onsite and remote deliveries of The OWAC Professional Development Workshop.
