We use a carefully choreographed curriculum geared towards providing the key tools required to operate modern technology. We use hands on training along with slide shows, video tutorials and problem solving tools to familiarize participants with technology making it second nature.
We also have a program that provides Desktop Computers to qualifying facilities. These desktops are configured to accommodate individuals with developmental disabilities. Each device utilizes tools such as Microsoft Accessibility which is a Windows resource that lists guides helpful for specific types of difficulties and impairments especially among individuals with developmental disabilities and the elderly. For instance, individuals with visual impairments can check out the Windows features that make it easier to view what’s on the computer screens. We provide guides that cover the assertive technologies built into Windows 7, IE11, and Office 2013.
We Implement web tutorials like GCFLearnFree.org. Which is an online platform for courses that cover technology, online literacy, and math skills. The site lists around 750 lessons that are designed for basic and intermediate levels. This site is suitable for everyone ranging from individuals with developmental disabilities to senior citizens, providing the ability to pick up basic internet and computer skills. (There is even a course on how to use an ATM). Courses are interactive and supported with articles, videos, and animation.
