Tech for Tykes is a groundbreaking program that is changing the lives of young children with disabilities through the use of assistive technology (AT). Children with developmental delays or disabilities often have difficulty playing and interacting with the world around them. AT provides them with opportunities to be active participants in life rather than passive bystanders. We hope you will take some time to explore the many valuable tools and resources Tech for Tykes has to offer children, families, caregivers and providers in the early childhood community.
We strive to assist children with disabilities to play successfully with toys and other children, communicate needs and ideas, make choices, and move independently.
The Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering (CIDE) has teamed with the Early Intervention Colorado to offer expertise in assistive technology for children up to three years of age. As always, we consider each child and their caretakers as essential members of the team.
Through early intervention, we can assist in recommending tools and adaptations to a child’s environment so they are able to participate in daily routines in their home, childcare program, and community. This helps them adapt to the world and builds a lasting foundation for using assistive technologies as they grow.
