Life Bridges - Enabling Technology
A team from Life Bridges recently attended the DIDD Enabling Technology Summit In Murfreesboro, TN.
Life Bridges is proud to enhance their Enabling Technology program, already helping individuals with intellectual disabilities seeking independence and employment.
There is very often a significant challenge of how to provide meaningful learning opportunities in a safe manner that does not expose individuals to the risk of physical or psychological harm. For any number of real-world tasks involved in living independently and having a job — whether learning how to safely walk across the street, or to board the public bus, or to drive a car, or to perform tasks at work — learning to do these tasks in the real world can be extremely challenging and even dangerous, at least at first.
The arrival of advanced technologies based on virtual reality and artificial intelligence are now making it possible to design realistic and immersive environments for realistic learning, in a way that is safe and fulfilling.
