The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires children and youth ages 3-21 with disabilities be provided a free and appropriate public school education. Unfortunately, there are too many cases of schools unable to provide the necessary resources to provide and maintain a quality level of education. Serotek is playing a small part in putting a dent in these disparities.
It’s disheartening to think that in this age of technological proliferation, there are still blind and visually impaired students who come home from school without the means to jump on a computer and complete their own homework. The cost for a screen reading solution with technical support remains out of reach of the average family bank account, and with budget cuts everywhere, school districts equally struggle to outfit one computer station with a screen reader, let alone several.
We’d like to remind you of our Keys to K-12 program. It’s a means for students elementary through high school to have ready access to a fully functional screen reader at no charge. System Access will enable students to equally participate in the classroom and complete homework assignments outside of it.
If you or someone you know could benefit from Keys to K12, check out the online form and get ready to enjoy free access to word processing, Internet browsing, e-mail, calendars and so much more.
At Serotek we’re personally invested in the idea of leaving no child behind on account of their visual disability. Please help us spread the word! And, if you have any questions, use the Contact form to get in touch.
