As the needs of the people we serve grow, costs also continue to grow. In response, Ability Beyond looks to technology, both individually and environmentally focused, to increase efficiencies, improve outcomes and increase autonomy and independence of the people we support. With an increase in independence, comes a decrease in the need for in-person supports, thereby reducing cost.
We have undertaken past small scale pilots, and are engaged in ongoing larger scale pilots which combine technology with programmatic interventions. Applications include, but are not limited to, instructional skill building, remote and environmental monitoring, as well as health monitoring and medication administration.
