News & Notes: Monarch’s Lighthouse Club receives five new iPads

8-Lighthouse-Club-new-iPads2Participants of Monarch’s Lighthouse Club Day program in Currituck County got a surprise last month when they received five new iPads from the Outer Banks Community Foundation.

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who attend the program are using this new technology for rehabilitation, recreation, and to assist with more effective communication.

“The iPads are important for the people we support because they allow for a greater usage and understanding of the role technology plays in society,” explained Erma Brault, operations director. “They also allow for expanding opportunities for completing individual goals, and increased social interaction between people supported.”

Participants of the Lighthouse Club will now have the potential to gain more independence and communicate more effectively with the use of new technology.

The funds were granted from the Foundation’s Pauline Wright Fund, which supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism and Down syndrome.
