Ohio AgrAbility staff continues a collaborative effort for the seventh consecutive semester with the University of Dayton College of Engineering to provide leadership in developing AgrAbility-based engineering projects for students enrolled in innovative engineering classes. Project teams focus on solving specific problems of Ohio AgrAbility clients through developing assistive technology or systems engineering.

Ohio AgrAbility attended the Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley Assistive Technology Fair in Dayton, Ohio. The main purpose of the fair was to allow people with disabilities, parents, and caregivers the opportunity to see and have hands on experiences using technology. Ohio AgrAbility showcased information about working with farmers and farm workers in Ohio and networked with assistive technology vendors about the latest in assistive technology. The Assistive Technology Fair also provided opportunities to attend educational training sessions Authentic Access, Dragon Naturally Speaking, and "Pearl Portable Reading Solution."
