Mission


Tech Kids Unlimited is on a mission to empower neurodiverse students’ lives through computer science principles and technology skills. A NYC-based non-profit educational organization, TKU inspires students with disabilities to create and share technology in a supportive individualized environment. By addressing gaps in access to accessible educational experiences with technology, TKU strives to change the paradigm for education and employment for neurodiverse students.

The TKU Approach

Learn Technology

By teaching computer science principles and technology skills, students increase employability and enhance their personal interests and passions for an increased quality of life.

Build Social Skills

At TKU we focus on the individual needs of the student. Social and emotional learning (SEL) skills are fundamental to success and are interwoven into all aspects of  programming.

Join a Community

TKU is a supportive community of peers, parents and families. For many students this is the first time they have felt safe, comfortable and fully supported to learn and have fun.   

The TKU Model

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

UDL learning concepts are based on the latest brain science and evidence-based educational practices which emphasize the use of digital technology.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

SEL encompasses five competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.

Connected Learning

Connected learning is made up of three components:
personal interests/passions, supportive relationships, and opportunities.

Design Thinking

Design thinking provides a specific solution-based approach to solving problems. There are five stages of Design Thinking: empathize, define (the problem), ideate, prototype, and test.

Project-Based Learning

Students engage in solving real-world problems over an extended period of time and have a final product to present.
