Many of the people served by Woods have communication problems, behavioral disorders and physical challenges. As such, they need specialized devices to help them move beyond the limitations of their physical disabilities. In recent years, technological developments have resulted in equipment that can dramatically improve the quality of their lives.
To provide clients with access to such technology, the Squier Assistive Technology Center was established in 1995. The Center serves as a resource, evaluation and demonstration center for people who can benefit from specialized equipment.
Since its establishment, the Center has developed adaptive keyboards, provided access to environmental control systems and improved the ability to repair and customize equipment.
Woods is committed to the advancement of knowledge in the field of assistive technology. Our Senior Occupational Therapist and Assistive Technology Specialist have both been active in educating students and professionals about the field through internships and coops, guest lectures at universities, and presentations at conferences and high schools. Woods has also co-sponsored two Assistive Technology Symposiums with Thomas Jefferson University, to share information about services and resources available to people with disabilities and the professionals who work with them.
