Tech Kids Unlimited is a not-for-profit technology-based educational organization for kids ages 8 to 18 with special needs, which empowers and inspires the next generation of digital natives to learn, create, develop and share the tools of technology.

His tech skill improved dramatically. As parents, we have become more supportive of tech because we have seen how meaningful it is for our son. I think his switch from a passive consumer of tech to a user-creator was very important for his sense of himself and for our understanding of what he can do when he is motivated.

It’s a great place to make friends and learn a ton of new stuff!

I loved doing Photoshop. I did not know you could actually animate in Photoshop.

Jonas, TKU Student

I-Stop Animation Workshop

Helping these students has opened my eyes to their potential. It has been truly inspiring to see them walk into the classroom eager and see them leave as a knowledgeable techie. Building a strong technology foundation will give them many opportunities that they would have not otherwise had.

TKU Counselor

Every kid deserves to be digitally literate, but none more so than those with special needs whose ability to contribute to society may hinge on their proven facility with new languages and logics that often confound the rest of us mere mortals.
