Today I’d like to share a couple of blog posts from the good people at SimplyHome. SimplyHome designs and installs customizable remote support systems that empower independent living for people who are aging or who have disabilities. As such, they have their finger on the pulse of how technology can be used to improve the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), as well as the challenges of implementing these technologies in a system of funding and delivering services that doesn’t always seem to conducive to such efforts.
In the posts, they discuss the term “Technology First” and what it means, and then tackle how to get started down the tech path. They are well worth reading. Check them out below.
