October 2013

 

Thank you for being a part of our success here at Josina Lott Residential & Community Services. With your support we are able to continue improving the lives of the individuals we serve.

 

Our Annual Appeal has officially kicked off for 2013 and this year the funds will have a direct and immediate impact on the lives of our individuals! We are ready to begin our iPad Assistive Technology Program created for our individuals to significantly enhance their lives.

 

The objectives of the iPad Assistive Technology Program include: using adaptive software to give voice to individuals with difficulty speaking and communicating, practicing life skills like money management and grocery shopping, reinforcing appropriate social behavior and peer interaction to build skills, giving accessibility to popular, trending and classic novels available in the public domain of books, expanding creativity through authoring books and /or poetry, and guarded exposure to social media.

 

The software programs / applications are so advanced as to offer auditory interpretation, voice recording, easy to identify icons and personalization of voices, pictures and other stimuli. Many programs are free to iPad owners or available at minimal costs. iPads offer assistive enhancements such as stylus hand grips, wheelchair arm mounts, pointers, single and 6-switch button controls and adaptive keyboards to name a few.

 

All funds raised from our Annual Appeal this year will be designated to our new, iPad Assistive Technology Program to purchase iPads, protective covers, necessary assistive enhancements and software programs.

 

Please choose to support the enrichment of the individuals at Josina Lott Residential & Community Services. You can make a difference in the lives of those with developmental disabilities who receive services from Josina Lott by helping to continually advance the abilities of the individuals we serve.

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael M. Malone
