Special Technology and Adaptive Resources for Students


The purpose of STARS is to demonstrate, evaluate and train students up to age 21 in Adaptive Technologies.

STARS provides youth with the opportunity to explore and learn about adaptive technology, including assistance with purchasing hardware and software which may help in their school work and independence. Instructors from the Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired will evaluate each student to develop a one-on-one training plan based on the student’s needs and goals. Training sessions may take place at Society for the Blind’s office in St. Louis, MO or in the student’s home.
