Study Money

On May 18th, 2021, The Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) launched a new website called Study Money. Study Money is a money management learning platform designed for people with disabilities, their families, and support teams. It is user friendly, interactive, and covers a variety of topics including money fundamentals, budgeting, funding assistive technology, and much more! The topics correspond to PATF’s Cents and Sensibility guide.

There are a multitude of resources targeted to both learners and instructors. Digital badges can be earned for completing a topic and learners can enter a drawing to win a $200 deposit into a PA ABLE savings account. Instructions can be found on the Study Money website.

View the PATF website to learn more and to see all the resources they offer to support access to technology. For questions, feel free to reach out to the Enabling Technology department by emailing Julie Daly at Julie.Daly@KenCrest.org or Joe McGuire at Joseph.Mcguire@KenCrest.org.

Flower and Vegetable Gardens

This spring, ladies and gentlemen have been busy planting flowers and plants, and watching their gardens grow. The ladies at Bridle Path are always eager to plant the first seeds of the year and tend to the flower pots. Last month, the gentlemen planted seeds before transporting their plants to the garden. They planted plenty of vegetables from squash to cucumber, green beans, and more!

Thank You, Independence Blue Cross

Virtual Vacations

Virtual Reality Experiences are Back

The Enabling Technology team is excited to offer people supported by KenCrest the opportunity to explore virtual reality (VR). Virtual reality is a way to experience new worlds, events, and activities without getting out of your chair! This could be a great opportunity for people with disabilities to take a virtual vacation, visit a museum, or even see a concert. They can explore old interests and find new ones. VR is also a fun way to “travel” and “get out of the house.”

KenCrest is offering virtual reality sessions in the Pottstown, PA area and must be scheduled directly with the Enabling Technology department. The ET team will work with the individual and their support team to develop meaningful experiences. Joe McGuire will guide the “traveler” through sessions in a comfortable setting while following all COVID-19 guidelines.

If you are interested in learning more or hoping to schedule a session, please contact the Enabling Technology department by e-mailing Julie Daly at Julie.Daly@KenCrest.org or Joe McGuire at Joseph.Mcguire@KenCrest.org. Julie and Joe are both happy to demonstrate the technology to teams, discuss concerns, and develop person-centered plans for virtual reality experiences.
