4 Levels of Digitability’s Award Winning Work-Ready Training 

Today, more than 70% of people with cognitive disabilities are unemployed. Digitability’s award-winning innovative approach is changing this statistic. Nearly 70% of our first cohort of graduates obtained meaningful employment.

LEVEL 1: INTERNET NAVIGATOR

Digitability uses technolgy as a hook to develop expressive and receptive language. 

level 1 block

Level 1 is designed to teach students basic tech concepts, while simultaneously developing their social and communication skills. Systematically exploring tech and socialization helps prepare students to navigate the social nuance of sharing online as well as the hidden social norms of a workplace. 

LEVEL 2: THE DIGITAL CITIZEN

Tech is not an isolated study; it is embedded in all of our independent living and work-ready skills. 

level 2 block

Level 2 trains students to use industry-standard workplace technologies such as word processing, email, presentation, spreadsheets. Through work-simulations students deliver presentations, manage budgets, plan travel, problem solve and learn how to give and receive feedback in a workplace, while navigating the most common workplace boundaries. 

LEVEL 3: TECH-SAVY AMBASSADOR

Tech is to employment as phonics is to reading. 

level 3 block

Level 3 trains students in specific job roles as well as the company cultures that are commonly seen in today’s workplaces. Students develop tech routines and collaborate in and out of the cloud, strengthening their project management skills. Simultaneously, students learn how to showcase their skills to develop a sense of empowerment. 

LEVEL 4: PRIME PROFESSIONAL

‘‘75% of all jobs require some degree of tech literacy “ - DOL 

level 4 block

In Level 4, students package their online resume and work-ready portfolio to demonstrate the marketable tech and social skills they developed through the Digitability program. Fully prepared for the job-seeking process, students develop their self-advocacy plan for the workplace, equipping with them with the skills to obtain and sustain their employment.
