Digitability provides work-ready training to individuals with disabilities like autism.
The path to preparing students for todays modern workplaces involves many technical moving parts. Digitability is the only scalable, STEM-focused model that continues to be recognized as an innovative solution to the unemployment crisis facing a large and growing population and has been featured on MSNBC, CNET, NPR, TechCrunch, Ted Talks, as well as showcased at Silicon Valley’s Social Innovation Summit.
For Students: The needs of individuals who participate in Digitability run the gamut from mild to intense; therefore, to create an inclusive environment, all of our resources are extensively differentiated to support a wide range of cognitive, communication and behavioral needs. Students are exposed to a variety of employment pathways and receive the training through Digitability’s Workplace Partner Network. Each student graduates with a work-ready, skills-based portfolio, and the social and communication skills to self-regulate and self-advocate. Digitability?s transition curriculum is designed using evidence-based practices to ensure skill transfer and generalization–that?s why 70% of our graduates have obtained full-time employment.
For Teachers and Administrators: Digitability can be integrated to enhance existing transition programming or serve as the foundation for a new and innovative program at any school. Our teacher coaching and professional development services provide one-on-one, year-long support to teachers. When teachers demonstrate mastery of evidence-based practices, they earn rewards for improving transition outcomes for students. Throughout this process, Digitability provides weekly and quarterly reports to teachers and administration to help manage Transition Planning data and the IEP process.
