Wyoming Assistive Technology Advisory Committee

In 2004, Governor Freudenthal designated the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND) to be the lead agency to administer the state assistive technology project as authorized by the federal Assistive Technology Act of 2004. As a result, the Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources program was established.
 
The WATR program serves Wyoming resident needs related to assistive technology, in collaboration with the advisory committee. The legislation stipulates that we must provide core activities, such as assistive technology loans, device demonstrations, device reutilization, technical assistance, and dissemination of information. In addition, this Act requires us to maintain an advisory council for the project to include members who represent assistive technology users as well as key members who can support and inform efforts in areas of education, health, independent living and employment.

Current Advisory Council Members:

Chele Porter, Burns, Chair

Theresa Robinett, Casper

Christopher Herron, Cheyenne

Sandra Sundin, Cheyenne

Gaylene Ring-Guth, Torrington

Matthew Mayberry, Cheyenne

Mary Guenzel, Laramie

Laurel Henry, Casper

Casey Wood, Laramie

Lori Regnier, Cheyenne

 


Responsibilities of this council include attendance at bi-annual meetings in Laramie where members will help the WATR team to evaluate, develop, and implement strategies for the core activities listed above. Our next meeting will be held on Friday, September 29, 2017 from 9:00- 4:00 in Laramie, Wyoming. We will also have a distance videoconference connection available, but would encourage travel to Laramie if at all possible. (Travel expenses such as mileage and rooms as necessary will be covered.)
 
Next Meeting: Friday, Sept. 29, 2017
9:00-4:00 p.m.
Ivinson Memorial Hospital Meeting Room
Laramie, Wyoming
