(INDIANAPOLIS) - The INDATA Project at Easterseals Crossroads will host an Immersion Lab with assistive technology as part of the Indiana Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (INARF) 2017 Annual Conference.

The conference takes place March 15-16, with a pre-conference on March 14, at Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing, located at 8787 Keystone Crossing in Indianapolis. The two-day event is themed "All In." It offers 40 educational sessions as well as networking opportunities designed with industry professionals serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in mind.

The INDATA Project Immersion Lab is available to attendees on Wednesday, March 15 from 10 a.m.-3:15 p.m.

"We are excited to host the Immersion Lab, which gives conference attendees the opportunity to view, learn about and try out many different assistive technology devices," said INDATA Director Brian Norton, ATP, CEAS. "With the help of emerging technologies, there are many new ways to approach challenges people with disabilities may face at home and in the workplace. We can't wait to show off some of these exciting devices."

Norton and Josh Anderson, ATP, BSPA, of the INDATA Project at Easterseals Crossroads will also lead two interactive sessions about video modeling, an effective tool for improving various skill deficits in all aspects of life. The training will allow attendees to learn the benefits of video modeling and then practice what they learn in real-world situations using provided assistive technology.
