This helpful Ask an Expert session will start with a brief overview of all the programs offered by Technology for Living: Provincial Respiratory Outreach Program (PROP), Technology for Independent Living (TIL) and Peer Support. We will then expand upon the TIL program and all of the different technologies and devices available to our members. Finally, Ean & Taylor will talk a little bit about each of their smart homes and all of the things they are using technology for, to achieve greater independence. After this, they’re more than happy to answer any and all questions people have about smart technologies!

About our hosts:
Ean Price, Innovation Strategist, Technology for Living
“I have lived in the Okanagan since 1986 and have been a PROP client since 2001. I was also a Technology for Living board member for 6 years. I own and operate a small tech company, with a passion for independence through technology. In my free time I enjoy traveling overseas and volunteering with local non-profit organizations including the Tetra Society, Neil Squire Society and Muscular Dystrophy Canada. In 2016, I was proudly elected President of Kelowna’s Disabled Sailing Association of BC. Having Spinal Muscular Atrophy II, I have worked with and developed a wide range of assistive technology.”
Taylor Danielson, Community Coordinator, Technology for Living
“I started working with Technology for Living in 2020 as a technician helping our members with their technology. Through my interactions with our membership, I had the opportunity to hear their stories, learn from their experience, and discover my own passion for helping the community. Now, as Technology for Living’s Community Coordinator I work every day to help our community outreach programs such as Pathways to Independence & the Simon Cox Student Design Competition continue to flourish and provide our members with the knowledge, resources, and equipment they need to continue living successfully in their community. I hope to continue to share my own lived experience as a person with a disability (Spinal Muscular Atrophy II) with our members and am grateful whenever I have the chance to learn from my peers. In my personal time I run a small business primarily focused on 3D printed assistive technologies. I also enjoy spending time with my two dogs, reading books, and playing video games.”
