We were busy in the field last week and didn’t have a chance to post our AT News Wrap Up, so this week you get double the fun. We’ve got tactile books for Halloween, apps for stroke patients, 3D printed braces for kids, and way more. So pull up a seat, grab your coffee, and take a mid-morning break – AT in the news for the weeks of 10/13 thru 10/24.
