Coleman Institute Conference set for Oct. 3

The Coleman Institute for Cognitive Disabilities’ 18th Annual Conference, Advancing Accessibility for All, is set for 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield. Registration is still open and is free for students.

The conference explores innovative technology solutions and promising practices that promote quality of life for people with cognitive disabilities and their families. It’s the only event of its kind sharing such knowledge while cultivating relationships between public and private entities.

Highlights of this year’s presentations include “Implications of Developments in Machine Learning for People With Cognitive Disabilities,” by Bill Coleman, founding donor, Coleman Institute for Disabilities, and “Promoting Self-Determination: Development of the Goal-Setting Challenge App,” by Karrie Shogren from the University of Kansas.

The conference also will feature keynotes from Patrick Mannix, senior adviser, Office of Disability Employment Policy, US Department of Labor and John L. Martin, director, Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.

Participants may choose from over 20 breakout sessions and spend time meeting and learning about the latest technology resources from many sponsors and exhibitors. The event also features a free lunch.

Certificates of attendance will be emailed to individual attendees following the completion of an online post-conference survey.
