Situation

Currently, Side By Side has 12 deteriorating desktop computers and some ipads. The current technology does not have a shared network option, limiting resource interaction. The technology is also too old to accommodate newer programs and apps that would hugely benefit the children. Our computer furniture is worn out and totally unsuitable for children with poor vestibular tone as well as for children who are rigidly immobile.

Solution

Project InTeraction will provide brand new computers with state-of-the-art functions including relevant apps and programs and most importantly, a shared network. This will help our children tremendously with communication, education and focus. Brand new custom designed furniture will enable even the most severely disabled child to access computer technology and improve their lives in a transformative way!
