YAI’s Center for Innovation and Engagement understands how technology can help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities better participate in their community.
People of all ages use mobile devices to communicate, listen to music, complete courses, play games, travel, and pay bills. With training, those who receive support from YAI can develop the independence to do so as well. The Center for Innovation and Engagement is focused on empowering people in four key areas: Home: environmental control devices for those with limited mobility to control doors, lighting, temperature, and electronics. Safety: assistance for the medically fragile to address risks from falling, wandering, cooking, and medication management. Health: devices that monitor heart rate, calories burned, steps walked, blood pressure, and exercise customizable to individual needs. Community: access to online learning, travel, music, game-playing, and finance.
