Important new resource from The Arc.
The need for a service that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
(I/DD) access technology has long been apparent and The Arc decided to step in to help
centralize resources in this field. Through a partnership with the Comcast Foundation,
The Arc was able to create the Tech Toolbox.
Staff from across The Arc’s chapter
network came together to design a one-stop-shop, peer- reviewed directory of
technology products that are effective for people with I/DD. Through this directory,
chapter staff, people with I/DD, and the general public can find, review, and post
examples of technology tools that work well for them. There are already over 500 apps
and devices in Tech Toolbox, and the list will continue to grow with your input! Tech
Toolbox is supported by a grant from the Comcast Foundation
