Each student typically receives one-on-one attention from the Computer Instructor. Adaptive Technology software is available to meet the needs of consumers who are either visually impaired, legally blind, or totally blind. For those with functional vision, a screen magnifier program is used. For those unable to benefit from the magnification software a screen reading program provides the auditory assistance. Typically, the student will attend one 60-minute session per week.
