Adaptive equipment and assistive devices open up a new world and help people with disabilities gain more independence in their environment. An on-site technician designs and builds custom equipment like switches and environmental controls to provide children greater independence with daily living activities, leisure time, communication and sensory stimulation.
Specialists trained to support students’ use of computers apply their knowledge to customize computer keyboards and programs to assist children in accessing that learning tool.

“Mark and I have been good friends ever since that first meeting at ACC.
He helped me to see my dreams, and he believed in me. Mark is always there to assist when I need it. He pushed me hard, but I needed that. Without him, I would not be here to say I am a Cinematographer.
He made my dream come true.”
