Knox and Coshocton County Boards of DD were awarded a grant through The Ohio State University Nisonger Center for an Assistive Technology & Remote Supports grant. With these funds, we have been able to create several videos highlighting how someone could use different types of Assistive Technology or Remote Supports in their home to be more independent. We were also able to create a “Mock Home” equipped with Amazon Alexa, Amazon Microwave, smart light switches, smart light bulbs, smart electrical outlets, pill minders, Ring Doorbell, Remote Supports and more! If you would like to see how some of these different pieces can help you or someone you care for be more independent in their home, please contact us and we will be happy to set up a time to take a tour of the home!
