Assistive technology exists to help people minimize the impact of barriers they encounter in their daily lives. The last 21 months alone have shown us how making things less difficult for ourselves can have a positive impact on our personal wellness. Jason and Jordyn (Assistive Technologists from the Paul Menton Centre) will chat about some common assistive technologies that can be used with your personal strategies to make things a little easier for you or even someone you know.
