TECH CENTER

The TECH Center is a place for children, parents, adult consumers, and professionals to learn about assistive technology by providing hands-on access to computer hardware, software, and adapative equipment. Assistive technology is any equipment that can be harnessed by an individual with a disability to diminish or eliminate barriers to education or independence. TASK's TECH Center demonstrates a wide range of assistive technology solutions, ranging from "low tech" options like specialized pencil grips for people with fine motor difficulties to "high tech" devices like head-controlled peripherals that allow people without the use of their arms or legs to access the computer.

A visit to the TECH Center

The TECH Center has 11 computers, over 1,250 software titles, and more than 1,000 iOS apps for the iPod Touch and iPad, as well as a multitude of different types of adaptive equipment such as alternative keyboards, trackballs, mice and switches.
