2019 Directors Forum & Mid-Year Conference

2019 Directors Forum & Mid-Year Conference

The Future is Now:
Using Technology in I/DD Services

June 4 – 6, 2019
Sheraton Grand Seattle
Seattle, Washington


Technology influences nearly every aspect of our lives! It is embedded in today’s society in almost every interaction. State I/DD agencies are learning about the benefits of incorporating technologies and remote supports into everyday service and support provision for people with I/DD through research and development. As states continue to improve systems to support home and community-based services, an opportunity also arises to embrace new and emerging technologies to promote independence and inclusive lives for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The conference will provide opportunities to:

  • Learn about innovative technology strategies and approaches
  • Learn from state colleagues about funding technology in home and community-based services
  • Learn about state initiatives to use technology to improve people’s quality of life, and increase independence and personal freedom.
