On October 14, 2011, Imagine!’s SmartHomes guru Greg Wellems gave a presentation at the annual ANCOR Technology Conference. Greg spoke about the importance of strategically implementing technology for organizations which are looking to use technology as a way to enhance services for individuals with developmental disabilities. This was a powerful and important message to share as more and more organizations are realizing the potential that technology has to offer, but aren’t quite sure where to start. Greg’s presentation offered solutions for building a solid foundation on which to develop technology use in the DD field.
