DIDD’s Enabling Technology Program
Enabling Technology is the use of various forms of devices and tech to support a person with disabilities to live as independently as possible. These types of technologies include sensors, mobile applications, remote support systems, and other smart devices. Enabling Technology can support a person in navigating their jobs and communities, gain more control of their environment, and provide remote support and reminders to assist a person in independent living.
DIDD launched its Enabling Technology program in 2017, and has seen life-changing results within its service delivery system. This page serves as a resource and clearinghouse for all of the information related to the DIDD’s program.
