Digitability streamlines and strengthens all of the necessary academic, social/emotional and vocational skills training needed for independence in our tech-driven and highly social economy.
Students in special education classrooms have complex needs. The path to preparing students for today’s modern workplace involves many technical moving parts, that not every teacher will have the background in. For the last eight years, the Digitability model has been recognized as an innovative solution to the unemployment crisis facing a large and growing population, and has been featured on MSNBC, CNET, NPR, TechCrunch and showcased at Silicon Valley's Social Innovation Summit.
Digitability students graduate with a work-ready, skill-based portfolio and the social and emotional ability to persevere, self-regulate and self-advocate; this is helping people with neurodiverse needs overcome existing social and attitudinal barriers to obtaining and sustaining employment. Through Digitability's unique process, 70% of our graduates have obtained full time employment.
The needs of individuals who participate in the Digitability program run the gamut from mild to intense; therefore, to create an inclusive environment, all of our resources are extensively differentiated to support a very wide range of learning and behavior needs. Digitability's teacher training, coaching and professional development services are customized based on any teachers level of experience with evidence-based practices. This combined with progress monitoring and data features, ensures that students are meeting their measurable, work-ready goals.
