This service provides individuals and their support systems with:
- Information on technology options
- Individualized one-on-one training twice a week
- Small group class sessions
Our monthly educational sessions inform individuals and service providers about new technology, applications, and physical modifications to meet disability needs.
Our team provided 1,546 service hours in 2020. Most of these hours focused on telecommunication access and understanding the capabilities of the iPhone/Android devices and applications.
The Enrichment team has developed curricula on a wide range of adaptive and assistive technology. These curricula encompass programs used for personal, educational, and professional settings.
Curricula range from accessing a smart device to navigating Microsoft Teams. While many curricula are available to sighted people, that training does not meet the unique needs of the vision loss community. Most are inappropriate for those with blindness or dual-sensory impairments who require Jaws, screen magnification, or applications.
Consumers in the program engage in two 1-hour sessions weekly with an adaptive technology trainer. Additional learning opportunities are also available through our monthly Tech-It-Out broadcasts on Radio Talking Book Service and live Zoom classes.
Open Lab Sessions
Open lab sessions (held every Friday) are available to current and past clients and the general public to receive additional training, help with a task, or simply ask questions.
We encourage interested participants to call and let our team know they plan to attend.
