The Working with H.E.A.R.T. Technology Project will create an interactive mobile application to promote competitive employment opportunities in inventory, requisitions, shipping and receiving (and similar jobs) for adults with developmental disabilities. The project is a collaboration between the H.E.A.R.T. Program that educates, trains and employs adults with developmental disabilities and a technology firm, Blue Lance Group, which creates and designs customized applications and software.
State Plan Goal 1
Create and support promising practices that enable people with developmental disabilities to be fully included in their communities and to have control over their own lives by 9/30/2021.
A new easy to use inventory tracking app helped people with IDD completely operate six Papa John’s kitchens at Super Bowl LI. And that’s just the beginning of what may be possible with the i4me app.
By developing an iPad app that helps record vending machine inventories, The HEART Program in Houston is one tap closer to helping adults with IDD achieve their employment potential.
