At SI Services, we proudly offer innovative technology products and strategies to assist individuals with intellectual disabilities live an independent and fulfilling life!
12-2022 We continue development in partnership with CCI College of Computing and Informatics senior students from Drexel University. As parents of a son with autism, we hold a special perspective as technology professionals with real world understanding of autism, intellectual disabilities and strategies to help provide supports to increase productivity.
Would someone you know benefit from additional supports so they can be more independent and not rely on others to complete daily tasks and activities?
Please join us for an upcoming Virtual Road Show series “Technology to Support Independence in PA!” People from all backgrounds will be sharing their personal stories and experiences with exploring how technology can support and improve everyday lives. Each session will include scheduled presentations and plenty of time for group conversation, questions, and feedback. Please bring your own experiences to share, so we can learn from each other!

Parents also need to make certain all family members are prepared if there should be an emergency situation at home.

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 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’
