Intellectual Disabilities

Our team at CreateAbility is always examining challenges in the IDD space from the perspective of technology. While we know that technology should never be a total replacement for the meaningful connection that DSPs have with their person served; we understand how technology can help DSPs optimize their time and save agencies money.  Most importantly, technology...

1.) Assistive Technology affords the person being served the ability to have their plans in front of them at all times.    Antiquated, printed copies of care plans on are not mobile - and are not as easily changed as the person-served accomplishes their goals. Assistive technology grants individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to feel more a part of the planning process as they...

Hi, I’m Steve Sutter, and I have problems saying no.  (Others: “Hi, Steve…”) What’s worse is that because I can’t say no, I say yes. I say yes, A LOT. It seems that the only people that I say no to are those that I love and care for the most. That’s something I know...

As you know, Medicaid is the largest funder of disability programs in the United States. So, it’s easy to fear the future when you read the new report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) that discusses the funding landscape for Medicaid programs during the pandemic.   After taking a few deep, cleansing breaths, we want you to know that we...

The benefits of remote supports have been a true game-changer for employment and residential support organizations/agencies in the Intellectual Developmental Disability (IDD) space. Organizations in the senior care market have also experienced similar benefits from remote supports as it offered a big advancement in the quality of care that they can offer their clients.  In general, remote supports have equipped providers with virtual “eyes” inside of the homes of the people they serve without being intrusive to their lives....

It was designed as a tool to non-intrusively engage the person being served and solicit quick responses to important questions from an avatar-led platform. (To see avatalk in action, click here to view the demo.) Since avatalk’s inception, it is being creatively...

As many states consider the benefits of technology, it can be a bit scary to those in the technology adoption hot seats. I totally get it – it’s easy to become infatuated with emerging technologies, but can I make a confession? It’s exhausting to track and make sense of every sparkly, new technology even for...

DSPs and support staff members’ jobs are not just to keep their clients safe and healthy, but to also work with them on establishing goals for themselves and working to achieve them. Often times, people with IDDs also have a dual diagnosis; another behavioral challenge in addition to their intellectual developmental disability. Behavioral challenges can...

I don’t know about you, but I never really liked wearing a mask on Halloween. By the time I trick-or-treated the seventh house, I was pretty much over it. Now, I carry my N95 with me everywhere. I wash my hands like I just fished my cell phone out of the toilet (again). I can...

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of hearing the phrase “the new normal”.  Sure, I miss hugging my elderly parents, I miss my weekly “dine-out” night, and I’m a music junkie so the live music scene beckons me.  Yet, I’ve noticed some changes in the world around me that, to be frank,...
