Chair’s comment: When considering the venue for announcing the release of the DeveloperSpace and Unified Listing, the AAATE immediately came to mind due to its central role in the life of Assistive Technology and those who create, apply and use it. The existence of the Special Thematic Sessions (STS) within the program, provided the perfect format for presenting the DeveloperSpace and Unified Listing and exploring their utility and benefits across the different stakeholders.
