Our goal is to bridge the technology gap for students with brain injury and neurological disorders in order to enhance their education and rehabilitation and to better prepare them to function in the community where technology is embedded everywhere.
We do this through new skill development, and by providing exposure and training that is useful to students as they transition to vocational settings. These experiences increase confidence, self-esteem, and overall independence.
We also use technology for a variety of therapies, depending upon a student’s unique skills and areas of need. For some students, technology-enhanced memory aids can help them move through their day more independently. These memory aids can be used to recall completed tasks, identify upcoming events and programs, and plan a daily schedule for therapies, appointments, and work-related tasks.
For other students, “high tech” devices such as touch tablets are helpful tools to augment their communication skills. Others benefit from more “low tech” options such as the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) that to support their communication needs.
