Juvenile diabetes is a serious illness and ABILITY is proud to do their part to support the Nevada Diabetes Association, on July 10, in their goal to educate and improve the lives of those with diabetes.

The Nevada Diabetes Association will use this money to underwrite scholarships so they may attend Camp Buck. At this camp we will educate them on diabetes management with diet, exercise and medication. Many children will have their first experience with medication at this camp.

Potential Encroachment Issue for O&P

We have serious concerns about proposed education standards that could have a significant impact on our profession, namely the potential for infringement and encroachment by the Assistive Technology Professional (ATP).

We need you to make public comments about a proposed set of Assistive Technology education standards that are currently being reviewed by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Professions (CAAHEP). The Assistive Technology profession, sponsored by the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA) has published proposed education accreditation standards that we believe would be detrimental to O&P practitioners.

Review the proposed Assistive Technology Standards in detail.
