assistive technology

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...

Cardiologists issue blood pressure devices to keep tabs on their patients’ heart function between appointments.
