Join Ean Price and Taylor Danielson on Thursday October 12 , 2023, for Youth Assistive Technology (YAT)
Ean Price and Taylor Danielson will showcase how Youth Assistive Technology is breaking down barriers, and opening up new opportunities for youth with physical disabilities. From smart home devices to customized tech solutions, they will explore the innovative technologies empowering youth to lead more independent and fulfilling lives.
Ean Price the Innovation Strategist and Peer Team Lead at Technology for Living, is at the forefront of merging technology with accessibility. He also runs a diverse company specializing in Multimedia Design, Assistive Technology, and Accessible Travel. A passionate advocate for leveraging technology to enhance independence, Ean has an extensive background in developing various assistive technologies. When he’s not innovating and advocating, Ean loves to travel, engage in adaptive sailing, and volunteer with non-profits like the Tetra Society, Neil Squire Society, and Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
Taylor Danielson bridges the gap between technology and accessibility. As an Assistive Technology Consultant, he spearheads initiatives at Technology for Living and partners with Kinova Robotics, aiming to develop meaningful technological solutions that empower individuals with disabilities. Drawing from his personal journey with Spinal Muscular Atrophy III, Taylor’s work is deeply rooted in a commitment to inclusivity and understanding. Beyond his professional landscape, Taylor delves into 3D printed assistive tools and continuously refines his own smart home setup. The joy and companionship of his two dogs provide a grounding counterpoint to his technological pursuits. At the heart of all he does is a conviction: technology can and should foster a more inclusive and supportive world for everyone.
