IACP Proud Recipient of 2016 Coleman Institute DIGS Award

IACP's Grant: Technology in the Heartland - Ensuring Iowans Experiencing Disability Are Not Left Behind

Purpose: To increase awareness of the Declaration across the state of Iowa in both the self-advocacy and provider communities. It will also help to further address needs identified in our technology needs assessment and seed promising practices in service provider agencies. These activities will set the base for a strong effort to ensure the infusion of technology in the everyday lives of Iowans who experience cognitive disability.

Declaration of the Rights of People with Cognitive Disabilities to Technology and Information Access

We invite all of you to read this declaration, The Rights of People with Cognitive Disabilities to Technology and Information Access, and affirm your commitment to the equal rights of people with cognitive disabilities to technology and information access by endorsing it.

Coleman Institute
The Institute was established in 2001 by the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado System. Its establishment was made possible by a generous endowment from William (Bill) and Claudia Coleman. Our mission is to catalyze and integrate advances in science, engineering, and technology to promote the quality of life and independent living of people with cognitive disabilities. The Institute is actively engaged in supporting research, development, dissemination, and education in cognitive disabilities on all campuses of the University of Colorado: in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, and at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. We are committed to providing scientific, technological, and public policy leadership to strengthen the voice of persons with cognitive disabilities and their families in our society.
