APH continually seeks to develop and improve upon its roadmap for high-tech low vision devices. Innovations in technology, changes to tools and processes in education, and evolving needs of students necessitate long-term planning. Through research, surveys, and strategic partnerships, APH aims to ensure that students with low vision have the necessary technology to be successful. Attend this session to identify which current and future APH products can help to optimize sensory efficiency and align with instructional activities. Participants will learn about our innovative approach to ensure that our technology builds transferable technical skills while providing access to the curriculum and independent living tasks. Discover what innovations APH will incorporate in technology in the next five years. The presenters will demonstrate how to complete educational and independent living tasks with current high-tech low vision devices built by APH. They will also detail processes used to develop technology through informational instruction. Finally, they will provide a preview of a desktop tablet and handheld magnifier that are in development.
