Technology opens doors in today's digital world. We help individuals live life to the fullest through training and individualized assistive technology to facilitate increased independence and inclusive adulthood

Most schools have between $1000 and $1500 to grant. How could your organization use a grant of this size? *

UCP's Academy of Technology Advancement program prepares students for adult life by increasing independence, expanding life options and career choices. The assistive technology assessment includes evaluation for augmentative and alternative communication devices, environmental controls, seating and positioning, mobility devices, ergonmics, and computer access technology. The Academy links its students to a global certification program that validates skills and competency in computer and internet literacy and is a resume-building credential recognized worldwide. The Academy of Technology can also help individuals pursue higher education, get accepted into universities, colleges, trade schools, or go on to hold jobs or volunteer positions. The funds provided by the grant would enhance the program by providing needed software such as ABBEY Fine Reader, an Optical Character Recognition software $300, Literacy Lab, a literacy teaching pro gram software $350, and copies of the READ OUT LOUD software which provides access to electronic books $840.

Geographic Area and Population Served: Despite our name, almost 60% of those served by United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati (UCP) have a primary disability other than cerebral palsy, including traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and other developmental and acquired disabilities. UCP provides direct, personal services to more than 450 teens and adults with disabilities each year. Training and technical assistance are provided to several hundred individuals who interact with people with disabilities in community settings. UCP assists individuals and families throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, including Hamilton, Clermont, Butler, Brown, Adams and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Northern Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Southeast Indiana. However, we do not limit our services by county lines.
