Technology Ambassador Project
The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) has a new grant opportunity available. DODD is requesting proposals for the Technology Ambassador Project.
Many Ohioans with developmental disabilities encounter obstacles in daily tasks and activities, as well as accessing education and jobs. Technology can aid people to overcome these barriers and help them live fuller lives. The purpose of this project is to increase information and resources around technology for individuals with developmental disabilities through the development of a Technology First- Tech Ambassador network.
Tech Ambassadors are individuals with disabilities throughout the state who will promote supportive technology by talking about their personal experiences using supportive technology in their home and community environments. Tech Ambassadors will be required to complete in person peer mentoring sessions across the state and work with DODD to increase supportive technology resources.
