ADAPTIVE COMPUTER LAB
Computers and the Internet are so woven into our lives today that many people take their many advantages for granted: the ability to communicate instantly, increased access to information, entertainment, social networking, shopping, financial tools, and business opportunities.
Fortunately, parents and funders (notably, the Lab’s cornerstone sponsor, the Bay Area Knights of Columbus) recognized way back in 1995 the potential value of computer access for people with developmental disabilities and invested early in appropriate technology. The Adaptive Computer Lab manifests PRRC’s mission to offer programs “that encourage self-expression, promote personal achievement, and lead to greater independence.”
As a client of PRRC, you can use a range of technologies for learning, preparation for work in an office setting, for creativity, or for fun. With numerous computer stations, iPads, video cameras and more, you can do everything from listening to music or making your own videos to emailing off a job application or editing a photo.
