Technology Tuesday

Periodically we like to use our Technology Tuesday posts to remind people about the Coleman Institute’s Declaration of The Rights of People with Cognitive Disabilities to Technology and Information Access.

People with cognitive disabilities have an equal right to technology and information access. A coalition of disability organizations and individuals asserted this right in a formal declaration, announced at the Thirteenth Annual Coleman Institute National Conference on Cognitive Disability and Technology, held October 2, 2013, in Broomfield, Colorado.

The declaration remains as important today as it was four years ago, and we still have a way to go before the goals outlined in the document become a reality. We encourage our friends and supporters to read this declaration and to affirm their commitment to the equal rights of people with cognitive disabilities to technology and information access by endorsing it.
