Conference Description:

i-CREATe will be focusing on using Assistive Technology for children with disabilities. We believed that AT for early intervention will make it possible for children with disabilities to be more independent at home, schools and in the community. A child with speech problems can communicate using augmentative and alternative communications. A child with learning disabilities can use accessible learning tools in the classroom and a child who cannot use his hands can use on-screen keyboard, switches or eyegaze system to assess the computer. Assistive technology can mean anything from simple, homemade devices to highly sophisticated environmental control systems. It can be adapted toys, computers assess, powered mobility, augmentative and alternative communication devices, special switches and other adapted tools to assist a child with learning and interacting socially.
The 5th i-CREATe will be held in Bangkok, Thailand for the 2nd time. In 2008, i-CREATe Thailand drew a crowd of closed to 400 delegates during the 3 days convention where the participants were from a vast background which includes allied health professionals, special education teachers, rehabilitation engineers, researchers, practitioners, non-governmental organizations and more. In 2011, we are very honored to have the presence of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn who will be gracing the opening of the convention for the 5th consecutive year.
