I am confused by this message. There are a number of image files attached that are not informational and an untitled file that is something from note pad. Was there supposed to be a pdf or a link. Forgive me if I have merely overlooked the details in the forwarded message.

Funding of Assistive Technology for Individuals who are Blind to Support Work and Independence: Looking to State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies, other Funding Sources, and other Funding Strategies to Obtain AT

Using a detailed case scenario, this webinar will highlight the state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency as a funding source for needed AT. In addition, presenters will discuss a number of AT funding sources and strategies that may not be well-known including: Medicaid waivers, Medicare Savings Programs, SSI work incentives, Alternative Financing Programs, the IRS flexible spending account, creative divorce settlements, the Crime Victims Compensation Fund, and uses of two or more funders to jointly purchase an item. Co-presenters for this session are James R. Sheldon, Jr., Neighborhood Legal Services, and Ronald M. Hager, National Disability Rights Network (both part of National AT Advocacy Project and Catalyst Project Partners). This webinar will begin at 2p.m. EST, run for 90 minutes in length, will provide CART service, and offer CEUs.

Since 2014, Neighborhood Legal Services, the National Disability Rights Network, and the RESNA Catalyst Project have been collaborating to bring AT Act Programs informational webinars on assistive technology and employment.
The collaborators will continue to provide additional webinars on a variety of topics in 2016. Look for details on additional webinars and how to register for them soon.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
