“For over 22 years, the Hill Crest Foundation has been a valued partner and has made a tremendous difference in the lives of students and clients here at AIDB,” AIDB President Terry Graham said.
“We greatly appreciate the confidence they have placed in the work we do and know this project will no doubt touch the lives of our multi-need students in the best way possible — assisting them in reaching the highest possible level of independence.”
HKS principal Christy Atkison believes that using assistive technology is significant for HKS students with multiple special needs.
Atkinson pointed to the new assistive technologies that can be found on the iPad and iTouch, including a device called Proloquo2Go that have been able to help deaf, blind, and multi-disabled children with their communication skills, allowing them to communicate more effectively with their parents while learning important language skills.
“We believe in immersing our students with opportunities to experience various forms of assistive technology, which not only builds self-confidence but levels the playing field in classroom and work environments. I cannot thank the Hill Crest Foundation enough for their generous gift,” Atkinson said.
