Reinventing Normal: New Technologies for Empowerment

All of us have things we are good at, things we aren't, and things we'd like to do but they are hard for us for whatever reason. The idea of "disability" carries with it the idea what cannot be done. How is technology changing that? How is technology changing the idea of what we can or can't do? These four speakers from U-M address the ways in which technologies are empowering individuals in their lives, changing the idea of what is a disability, and literally reinventing normal.
