HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
“The iPad inservice was a great success! Karen Velocci tailored the workshop to the needs of the Mercer County Special Services School District’s staff including, classroom teachers, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists. Every discipline was able to gather information to assist with the use of technology within their classrooms or therapy rooms. So many tricks were learned that allow us to restrict access and customize an iPad to meet student needs. This was such a valuable inservice and we will continue to offer this to our staff.” …. Nick Pappano, MCSSSD, SLP
We enjoy continued success of our Technology Learning Lab, a facility for research, development and analysis of technology for education. SI Services, in partnership with the Autism Cares Foundation, is a leader in iPad integration and is dedicated to assisting people with challenges reach their potential through learning.
We will empower you to make a difference in the lives of your children and students. SI Services was founded by parents of a child living with autism. The company’s unique perspective is based on the love of parents striving to do everything for their child to succeed in life. It is with that drive that the SI has become a strong force in iPad education and training. Look for the ‘Family Story’ blog detailing how technology has helped our child thrive and how it has helped our family lead a more typical lifestyle. ‘Use someone’s strengths to help overcome their challenges’
