Project AbstractAt YAI Tarrytown we work with individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is our mission with our Computer Creations program to help these individuals learn a variety of applications with computers. This would include at the very basic level, learning how to type. From there, our individuals can be taught how to navigate the internet, create email addresses, and research topics of interest. We hope that they can also learn skills on how to create and publish documents, such as flyers, greetings cards, and letters if they so choose.
Target PopulationThe donations will benefit adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities in a day habilitation setting. Since our classes rotate in the building, it is likely that the computers could be used by up to 50 individuals on any given day.
