Community Computing Program

Connecting People with Disabilities to Technology

Now there is a place to learn how to use a computer to access the Internet, shop for your groceries, pay your bills, access medical information and records, research available grants, complete school work, and connect with friends and family through social media outlets. These activities, and so many more, can help enhance your connection to the world around you.

The Inglis Community Computing Program provides FREE TRAINING in a multi-user computer lab with assistive and adaptive technology for people with disabilities.

The Community Computing Program is unique because it is based on YOUR goals. Our highly trained Adapted Technology Therapist will work with you to determine what special equipment you need to achieve your personal technology goals. Whether you need a simple, low-tech keyboard guard or more advanced navigation equipment, Inglis Community Computing will help you find the right tools and a set-up that will fit your specific needs and abilities. 

We provide:

  • Adapted Technology skills and needs assessments.

  • Workshop classes on basic computing skills, email access and management, voice activation software, Skype, computer art and much more.
  • One-on-one assistance to help you get comfortable with your equipment.

     

Additionally, Inglis offers highly personalized instruction to assure proficiency. Our staff has more than twenty years of experience working with adaptive technology and are experts in the field. 

For those wishing to purchase new equipment, re‑fit their home workspaces, or add to existing technology, Inglis can provide assistance with applying for low-interest loans through the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation and other funding sources.
