Tech Kids Unlimited is designed for children ages 7-21 years of age who have been diagnosed with cognitive, learning, and emotional disabilities such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Auditory Processing Disorder, Anxiety, OCD, Executive Processing and Dyslexia. Students don’t need any previous tech knowledge to attend. TKU students usually attend private schools for students with disabilities, are home-schooled, go to non-public schools as well as the NYC Department of Education’s ASD NEST program. Most students have an IEP or a 504 Plan. Students should be able to function in a classroom-like environment and work mostly independently. Most of our students have a medium to high level of both receptive and expressive language with little to no behavioral issues. Most students come from a 12:1:1 classroom environment or a 8:1:1 classroom environment. We are not able to provide 1:1 help for students online at this time. TKU is not specifically trained in working with students who are nonverbal. However, in the virtual setting, we have seen them be successful with at home help. At TKU, we understand that students will need additional help and support, and we have staff to make sure they can succeed.
Note about behaviors for in-person workshops: Our staff does not have the capacity or training to manage extremely aggressive or physical behaviors. Students who exhibit violence or strong aggressive behaviors will be asked to leave the program and will be refunded for the remaining days. If you are unsure if your child's behaviors are appropriate for our classroom, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before registering. This policy is in place to ensure the safety of all students and staff. If an in-person workshop would not work, we encourage you to try virtual workshops.
