TECH CENTER

TECH Labs

The TECH Center has 11 computers, over 1,250 software titles, more than 1,000 iOS applications for iPad and iPod Touch, and a multitude of different types of adaptive equipment such as alternative keyboards, trackballs, mice and switches. The purpose of a TECH lab is to try out some of the different types of software and adaptive equipment to help determine what best suits you and/or your child.

Labs are free for members. For non-members, the first lab is free, but subsequent visits require a $20.00 fee per lab. You must pre-register; walk-ins are not accepted. Please, bring only the child that is signed up for the lab. Siblings are welcome; however, they must be signed up for the lab also. Please bring one adult per child, if possible. Call us at (714) 533-8275 to register to attend a lab or for more information.

TECH Labs during the week are by individual appointment. They can be scheduled for any day of the week; there will no longer be "set" lab times on Mondays and Thursdays. This will enable TASK to better serve our consumers.
