Last night the Senate passed S. Res. 85 declaring March 1, 2023, “National Assistive Technology Day.” We want to thank US Senator Bob Casey (PA) and our own North Dakota US Senator Kevin Cramer for being the co-sponsors on this bill! Senator Cramer created this video to celebrate the day. He stated, “Assistive technologies can greatly determine a person’s ability to work, to communicate with family, friends, and colleagues, and of course to maintain their sense of independence.”

Jeannie Krull, assistant executive director of ND Assistive and Chair of the National Association of Assistive Technology Act Programs (ATAP), stated, “Everyone on the planet needs to know about the benefits of assistive technology because in their lifetime, they will need it for themselves, or they will know someone who needs it!”
