August 15, 2014 marked the beginning of the Technology Access Center’s twenty fifth year of service to the middle Tennessee disability community. This is a time to reflect on the celebrations over the years of people of who realized their aspirations in part by using technology solutions to achieve their important personal goals. It is time to also reflect on the celebrations of parents, teachers and therapists who aspired to raise, teach, and treat children with technology solutions and were successful in doing so.
The principles learned from the goals, dreams, achievements and accomplishments of each of these individuals will guide the members of the Board of Directors and staff of the Technology Access Center as they embark on the next 25 years of service. Increasingly, technology is the key to education, employment, and participation in community life. Technology must be and it will be available to all people in middle Tennessee in a very big way due to the services of the Technology Access Center.
Technology will advance at an amazingly much faster pace over the next twenty five years than it has over the last twenty five. The achievements and accomplishments people with disabilities of all ages will experience by using their personal technology will be nothing like anyone has seen before. Let the celebrations continue!
