The Arc Prince George’s County Hosts Tour of New Learning Lab
For people with autism, assistive technology can be an avenue to independence. This past October, one chapter took a giant step in ensuring this vital resource is available to people on the spectrum for years to come. Thanks to the Comcast Foundation, The Arc Prince George’s County now has funding to create a Learning Lab, offering assistive technology (AT) training for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
Shortly after receiving the award, the organization hosted an open house on October 18. Attendees received a tour of the Comcast NBCUniversal Learning Lab, as well as listened to remarks from Jim Coleman, President and CEO of Prince George’s County Economic Development; Rob Malone, Executive Director of The Arc Prince George’s County; and Deborah Goins, Director of Employment Services for the Arc Prince George’s County.
