  • Assistive technology, which this year is celebrating 20 years as Arizona’s largest, most comprehensive Assistive Technology conference
  • Evidence-based practice in disability disciplines,which for five years has been bridging the research-to practice gap to help professionals implement evidence-based practices
  • American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Training and Technical Assistance Center, a program that supports positive outcomes for tribal members receiving vocational rehabilitation services
