Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) is pleased to announce it has produced a new video funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.

Full transcript available.

Suria Nordin is a member of PATF’s Generic Smart Home Technology project Advisory Committee. As part of the Generic Smart Home Technology project funded by the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council, PATF visited Suria and her smart home with film students from the Academies at Roxborough to create this short video showcasing how Suria is using her technology to increase her independence at home and at work.

In 2017, PATF launched the Smart Homes Made Simple campaign to help people with disabilities who want to live more independently and with greater autonomy using new types of smart home technology. You can learn more about smart home technology that can help you achieve your goals and then connect with PATF for information and assistance with funding the smart home devices you need and want.

This project is supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council; in part by grant number (1901PASCDD-02) from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C. 20201.
