Abstract

With constant changes in the assistive technology field making it hard to keep up with current advancements, Seven Hills works to inform their staff and surrounding community about these assistive technologies through an annual exposition. Our team worked with staff of Seven Hills to plan and execute the 2018 Seven Hills Foundation Assistive Technology Exposition. This exposition offered a wide range of interactive assistive technology devices from companies and organizations throughout Massachusetts to help link people to useful resources. As a result of this exposition, we also produced a Planning Guide & Toolkit for Seven Hills to use in running future events.
