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, connect with friends and family through social media, learn about smart home technology and adapt your cell phone/tablet to increase usability. These activities, and many more, can help enhance your connection to the world around you.
The Inglis Community Computing Program provides FREE TRAINING at select locations throughout Philadelphia; at Inglis, in a multi-user computer lab with assistive and adaptive technology for people with disabilities. The Community Computing Program can also come to your home or facility to offer 1:1 or group sessions with their mobile AT Kit.
