Today, March 27th, 2019 is the first-ever
National Assistive Technology Awareness Day!
On March 11, 2019, Senator Robert P. Casey Jr., and Senator Kevin Cramer submitted S.Res.103, a resolution designating March 27th as National Assistive Technology Awareness Day to the U.S. Senate. That is right – North Dakota’s very own Senator Kevin Cramer played a vital role in making National Assistive Technology Awareness Day possible! Thank you, Senator Kevin Cramer and Senator Robert P. Casey Jr.! Better yet, the 116th United States Congress agreed to the resolution by unanimous consent!
According to the resolution, the Senate “commends assistive technology specialists and program coordinators for their hard work and dedication to serving people with disabilities who are in need of finding the proper assistive technology to meet their individual needs; and professional organizations and researchers who are dedicated to facilitating the access and acquisition of assistive technology for people with disabilities and older adults in need of assistive technology devices.”
HAPPY ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY AWARENESS DAY!
