DSHA Announces A Virtual Evening Meeting – Disability and Artificial Intelligence: Promises and Pitfalls

Delaware Speech-Language-Hearing Association presents
A Virtual Evening Meeting

Disability and Artificial Intelligence: Promises and Pitfalls

Andrew Jenks, PhD

Tuesday May 7th, 2024
6:00 p.m-7:30 p.m.

Course Description
This session addressed an important paradox in conversations around Disability
and Artificial Intelligence: disabled people are simultaneously expert users,
testers, and beneficiaries of technology which makes information more
accessible to the general public, yet are most likely to be left out of critical
decision-making processes about the adoption and use of these
technologies.

Learning Objectives
After attending this session, participants will be able to:

● Define and discuss a disability studies approach and its applicability to their practice

● Locate sites in their practice where they can make small, meaningful changes to
support and empower their clients

● Identify potential sites for the incorporation of AI into their practice, as well
as sites where AI has already become integrated.
