Gompers Habilitation Center is making great commitments in establishing an advanced Assistive Technology program by investing and building partnerships with visionary organizations.
These relationships have led to: SMART Boards in each classroom, customized Adaptive Equipment built by university students, having 3 in house therapists working with Assistive Technology, and most recently establishing an Assistive Technology Specialist position. In this presentation we want to share how Gompers, since 1947, has been an industry leader in providing programs, services, and resources to people with cognitive disabilities in the Valley. Through special education, day training for adults, employment services and now Assistive Technology services, we are committed to assisting these individuals in maximizing their greatest potential.
