RESNA History

The RESNA History Committee is charged with the collection and website display of artifacts relating to the history of assistive technology, especially items relating to RESNA.

RESNA information desired:

  • old RESNA eNews (I have many of these)
  • old printed RESNA News (I don't have any - perhaps the RESNA office has copies that are available in digital form - otherwise printed versions could be scanned)
  • old presentations, posters, slides
  • stories - oral (audio) or print or music
  • conference photos
  • photos of RESNA members

Assistive Technology information desired:

  • photos of old assistive technology
  • facility brochures
  • conference announcements

Please submit any stories, photos, and other content you might have to me, providing as much information as you can about the items.
