Adaptive technology training plans can be implemented to assist youth to enhance computer skills. When working with the school districts our team members work directly with the student, family, and educators to ensure that programming received through Outlook Enrichment compliments the student’s IEP plan.

Monthly Tech It Out sessions are also available for our youth and their family members to participate in. These sessions provide an avenue to gain information on the technology their student may be using. Sessions vary from by topic but focus on accessibility features, new technology, and apps that are on the market.
