Modern technology has made a considerable difference in the lives of the individuals we serve. For some, new tech makes tasks more convenient. For our clients, it may make the impossible... possible.
Imagine! is dedicated to utilizing emerging technology for one sole purpose: to improve the quality of life for those we serve. While the human connection and support system will never be replaced, there are areas in which technology can increase independence and communication for someone with a disability.
Our team of Assistive Technology Instructors are committed to implementing technology that supports all areas of Imagine! Direct Services. From daily tasks, to communicating one's needs, to going on a once in a lifetime adventure, technology serves a very important purpose in our field.
Tech In The Community
The best way to improve our use of technology is to collaborate with the experts. Partnering with pros such as Apple or Reality Garage allows us to push the limits on what our technology division is capable of.
We also partner with the CU Boulder engineering class every semester and witness creative genius at work! The students work on group projects and implement technology for a client at Imagine! to use in their daily life. Future engineers are exposed to ways to use their skills and knowledge for the greater good, and individuals with disabilities have an extra support in their daily living. It’s a win-win!
Assistive Technology is any device, software, or equippment that helps someone adapt to their challenges.
Imagine!'s Direct Services are embedded with technology solutions that clear the path for involvement in activities that might otherwise be inaccessible to someone with a diability. Assistive Technology is used in a variety of ways, both on site and in the community.
From voice activated kitchen appliances, to adaptive paint brushes, to automated reminders, the opportunity for independence and self-suffiency is endless.
