The GAATO association The Global Alliance of Assistive Technology Organizations (GAATO) is a new world body based in Geneva, Switzerland, representing global assistive technology (AT). GAATO works strategically and globally towards a world where all people can access the assistive technology they need. GAATO members have a strong track record of advancing people’s rights to appropriate assistive technology through practice, research, education, advocacy, and knowledge exchange. Membership is open to legally established membership organisations, and a key GAATO mission is to support the development of assistive technology organisations in low- and middle-income countries. Joining GAATO opens the gate to partnerships and collaborations. AAATE is a founding member of GAATO.
There has never been a better time to be local and think global, than at the 2020 RESNA Conference, held virtually from North America. The GAATO AT Outcomes and Impacts Summit is an exciting opportunity to join some of the world’s leading outcomes researchers discussing the future of international outcomes research.
Hosted by Professor Luc de Witte, GAATO President and members of the GAATO Board. Professor Marcia Scherer & Professor Roger O. Smith will deliver the plenary address: Different Strokes for Different Folks: Different Outcomes are Valued by Different Stakeholders.
Dates: September 23 & 24, 2020
