Programs

We provide technology and related expertise to individuals and partner organizations in order to deliver the best services to people with disabilities. We leverage the ability of technology to add significant value and to make benefits sustainable and scalable. We work closely with the people we serve and we adjust quickly from what we learn.

Accessible Educational Tech

We provide a complete technology package to schools for people with disabilities. This includes internet connectivity, managed devices, software, and training. Internet-connected modern devices such as smartphones and tablets unlock a world of possibility for educational, employment, and personal pursuits. Access to accessible educational applications enhances the in-class educational experience and enables teachers and students who natively use different forms of communication to better understand each other. We use proven technology that will increase learning outcomes and reduce teacher workload. We use modern device management to enforce responsible use of devices in addition to teaching proper and wise use of technology.

Accessibility Clubs

There are too many helpful assistive technologies to be covered in a school curriculum. By making technology available outside of the classroom setting, we allow interested students to have more opportunities to learn and gain experience with the latest and greatest accessible software. The skills that they learn will help them acquire useful skills and pursue their interests now and in the future. These extra-curricular activities provide fun and interesting learning opportunities that cater to individual interests.

We provide smart speakers built into the classrooms to enable familiarity with speech recognition user interfaces and provide direct access to useful information. The speakers are also helpful to teachers who regularly play various media formats for the class to listen to. With music being an important part of class interaction and enjoyment, we also provide music streaming subscription for the classrooms.
