The #1 Pre-employment Transition Curriculum

Curriculum tied to actual job descriptions and IEP goals

Today, more than 70% of people with cognitive disabilities are unemployed. In fact, researchers use the term, "the cliff," to denote the drop-off of services to support students through their transition to our tech-driven economy.

Meanwhile, we are approaching a time where 75% of all jobs require a degree of technical skills. While our adolescents are savvy with today’s technology when it comes to YouTube and online games, Digitability is the only program developing that interest into marketable skills a variety of types of jobs, while simultaneously building social and emotional capacity for the workplace.

"The Digitability curriculum is uniquely suited for our programs serving transition-age students. It addresses prerequisite skills related to employability and independent living -- and all in the context of preparing our students to be responsible and informed digital citizens."
 
"I was extremely impressed by the quality of the professional development that was provided as part of the implementation of Digitability. Often training involving new online instructional platforms is too focused on the technical aspects of the software. Michele McKeone's approach to our PD session was instead focused on the successful delivery of the curriculum including modeling important practices such as differentiated instruction, prompting, and positive reinforcement. While my teacher learned how to facilitate Digitability, she was also exposed to a sound refresher covering key research-based approaches to teaching student with Autism and other special needs."

I also have a vested interest in ensuring that our students are fully equipped to live their lives fully and safely in this digital age. ... Digitability helps facilitate that inclusiveness for people of varied abilities, including those on the autism spectrum, in a way no other technology-based business does.

Digitability reminds me to use the correct terminology when teaching skill development.
