As assistive technologies become more commonplace, people with disabilities are beginning to realize life-changing benefits. DDI is at the forefront in bringing these resources to persons with cognitive as well as physical challenges. Tomorrow’s conversation focuses on the life of one such person who, with technological supports, is able to live and work independently - while still remaining safe.

There are indeed enormous challenges and rewards that come with independence. Hear from the young woman who has been part of an exciting pilot program in her own words. We will dive more deeply to define and explore what has been characterized as ‘the dignity of risk’.
