Wyoming Assistive Technology Advisory Council

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, 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 employment.

Current Advisory Council Members:

Casey Schmidt, Laramie

Chele Mecomber Porter, Burns, Chair

Gaylene Ring-Guth, Torrington

Hunter Jones, Laramie

Jennifer D'Alessandro, Powell, Vice Chair

Kayc DeMaranville, Laramie
