About the training

Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living (APRIL) with the support of the University of Kansas will be hosting free meetings this year to learn more about how your Center for Independent Living is serving people with disabilities in your communities.  We will talk about how our organizations have changed as a result of the pandemic, and how these changes will impact what services look in the future.  Let’s dive into the world of IL, before, during and after a pandemic and begin to explore what work needs to be done now to make sure everyone has opportunities to participate in the communities of their choice in the way that makes most sense for them.

Who said going online with your programming would be easy? Let’s learn from our trials, errors, and successes about how to get consumers connected to the virtual world.

  • What are some strategies you are using to access technology and the Internet to get consumers up and running in their virtual environment?
  • What do you do about those consumers who don’t have access to the Internet?
  • How are you bridging the digital divide for folks who might be a little scared of technology?
  • Do you have tips, strategies, videos, or other program aids that you use to get consumers online to build their confidence?
  • How do you ensure access so that everyone can participate in your online environment successfully?
