Issue Background


ANCOR has joined with hundreds of other organizations to endorse "The Rights for People with Cognitive Disabilities to Technology and Information Access" Declaration. Read more here.

With increasing demands for supports due to longer lifespans and increased numbers of people with disabilities, coupled with a growing shortage of qualified direct support professionals, assistive technology is going to be vital to fill those gaps. 

Many people with disabilities have their lives enhanced by technology, including assistive technology, but also internet, social media, and other forms of technology readily available to other segments of the population. Access to this technology is a civil right, and ANCOR is committed to advocating for it.
