Do you need help deciding which products will work best for you and/or how to use those you already have?
A vast array of assistive technology exist to help people with vision loss access information. We specialize in identifying, from among that sea of products, those which will meet the individual needs of you, your family member or employee, and give them the ability to access information, both printed andÂ electronic, regardless of his or her level of vision loss.

It is very important to identify the type of technology and specific product that will be best for each person in their environment, as everyone has specific needs and goals. This can only be done by conducting an in home assessment to identify the tools that are most appropriate to accommodate your family memberâ€™s level and type of vision loss, those which will help to achieve his or her goals, and those which will help to maintain or regain independence. Sometimes these assessments are short and informal and sometimes they are more complex and formalized. Doing that for all ranges of vision loss and personal circumstances is one of our specialties and an area in which we have vast experience. Mark Nelson, who does the assessments, has been doing them for twenty years for all ages of people and has taught the topic at the Masterâ€™s level at Portland State University and the University of Arizona.
Your childâ€™s school is responsible for ensuring your child has the assistive technology and adapted educational materials needed to access a free and public education. Determining your childâ€™s need begins with a series of assessments. Digital Apex can provide the assessment to determine your childâ€™s need as regards assistive technology. We can also provide, install, configure and support your childâ€™s technology. Finally, we can provide you, your child, and your childâ€™s teacher with instruction on how to use the technology. If you need help understanding the special education process or IEPs, contact the Department of Education, Parent Information Network.
The best and most difficult thing about technology is that it is constantly changing. Those changes result in better products for those you serve, but itâ€™s nearly impossible for your staff to keep up.
Over time assistive technology programs can easily fall into a pattern of providing services around the same products and using the same methods because itâ€™s too hard to learn all the new stuff.
This is hard on the organization and the staff who want to innovate and grow.
Mark Nelson, the owner of Digital Apex has over twenty years of experience in starting, growing and innovating assistive technology programs. We can help you reach your dreams and goals for your program.
We start with an assessment of where you are now: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Then we listen to your ideas, dreams and goals. Next, we apply our knowledge to your situation and goals to create a roadmap that will lead you to success. Finally, we coach you through the implementation process until you are ready to continue on your own again.
