Assistive Technology for Students In Need of Repair


Students served in the Multiple Disabilities Classrooms at IU13 often use "switches" to communicate and learn. Switches allow students who can only exert minimal pressure with their hands the ability to communicate in class, express feelings, answer questions, etc. Unfortunately, they frequently have wires come loose and need welding. IU13 is seeking a school group or community organization/individual that is willing to experiment with repairing the devices. If you are interested, or know of someone who may be, please contact Sherri Williams at 717-450-1545.
