Thanks to the generous support of the Davenport Foundation, Kent Center is able to provide its family members with hands-on technology experience. Each program has access to iPads that were programmed by an expert in iPad Applications for persons with developmental disabilities. We also have two computers on which people can learn budgeting, research the weather or their favorite personalities, practice their reading and writing skills, email their friends, and do whatever else they have outlined as a technology goal.
One of the greatest new services that Kent Center has to offer is its Snoezelen Room. This sensory room is designed to create a sense of calm for those that need a break, and to inspire those that crave more stimulation. Bubble Tubes, textural equipment, music, light shows and more enable Kent Center staff to tailor the room to meet the unique needs of each individual at the time of each use. No two visits to the Snoezelen Room are the same, creating a sense of wonder and enjoyment for each of our family members.
