Tech Supports for Cognition & Learning 

All-Day Conference Exploring Everyday Applications and Emerging Trends

The first annual Tech Supports for Cognition and Learning conference took place at the Mercy College campus in Dobbs Ferry on March 31, 2016.  The conference was a collaboration between Arc of Westchester and Mercy College.  It was the first conference of its kind that focused on technology solutions for people with disabilities to help with tasks for independence in everyday life. The outpouring of community interest was evident with the larger than expected crowd of professionals, students and families. If you attended, we hope you found the day informative.
