I've been reading up on some other blogs about assistive technology and living with disabilities that I wanted to share a short list of some good AT blogs I've come across lately:
1. Can-do-ability: A great blog about living with disabilities by a young woman from Australia who uses a wheelchair.
2. The Virginia Dept of Education Assistive Technology Blog: This is a no-frills little blog that does a good job of pointing to interesting developments in the AT world. A good occasional resource for teachers and providers looking to stay up to date.
3. No Limits 2 Learning: You're a noob if you don't know this blog already. The blog''s author, Lon Thornburg, is an educator and an AT specialist and trainer. He is very involved in the community and posts some great info related to AT and education. He also runs AT Blog Carnival.
4. A.T.TIPScast: The blog correlates with the podcasts by Christopher Bugaj about helping public school students with Assistive Technology. Keep your eyes out for a book on the topic available in March 2010.
5. Indiana Easter Seals Blog: These guys do a lot of product overviews and reviews as well as posting about different conferences and public issues for the disabled. There's a lot of localized info about Indiana but many of the issues are relevant to national and global readers.
6. AT in the UP: AT in the UP is local to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Posts cover everything from web tools to software and everything else needed to live in the Internet Age with a disability.
7. ATMac: ATMac is great for all you Apple fans out there. It covers all things Mac & Apple geared toward products that help people with disabilities.
8. Coral and Opal: Sometimes self-reflecting and sometimes reporting on the social aspects of living with a disability, Coral and Opal feels more personal than some of the others. Author Bill Darling is a disability professional at Ohio State University who also discusses assistive products.
9. AbleBody: This blog is more professional with several contributing authors. Many of the stories discuss political and community issues for people with disabilities but they also cover new and exciting AT.
So that's it. These are a few that I've come across lately. What about you? What are your favorite AT or disability related blogs?
