Taking place on 7 November, TechAbility 2023 will give you opportunities to learn from leading practitioners in the field of Assistive Technology with all presentations grounded in practice and research. Consult our programme for the sessions already announced. Alongside the presentations will be opportunities to meet with AT suppliers and discuss the solutions they provide.
