The Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities is a Coalition of national consumer, advocacy, provider and professional organizations headquartered in Washington, D.C. Since 1973, the CCD has advocated on behalf of people of all ages with physical and mental disabilities and their families. CCD has worked to achieve federal legislation and regulations that assure that the 54 million children and adults with disabilities are fully integrated into the mainstream of society.
Audrey Busch, ATAP’s Executive Director, serves as a CCD Co-Chair of the Technology and Telecommunications Task Force. The CCD Technology and Telecommunications Task Force works to guide the development of all legislation to ensure that assistive technology is not an afterthought when developing policy solutions for education, community integration, employment, and other important policy areas. ATAP is also a participant of the CCD Employment and Training Workforce Task Force and the CCD Education Task Force.
