Image says Welcome to Southern Tier Independence Center with grey dove image on left side of text.

 

Imagine a world that is accessible to everyone--where no barriers to independence exist; where you're allowed to be yourself and free to let your disability be just one more part of you. Together we can shape this world. Join the Independent Living (r)evolution! Our unity can be a potent force for change. In addition to providing services, the Southern Tier Independence Center is a gathering place for people and information. Our joint efforts in understanding the issues and concerns of people with disabilities can pave the way to this more accessible world. The Center believes that people have the right to be responsible for making their own choices. By working with you rather than for you, we respect your ability to know what's best for you. If any of our services seem like a good option for you, we'd like to meet you! All services are free unless otherwise indicated.

Assistive Technology for Students - 5/23/16 from 9:30 to 11:30

Assistive Technology (AT) can facilitate and enhance learning and instruction.  AT can be used to maintain or improve functional capabilities of a child with a disability.  Every Committee on Special Education must consider whether assistive technology is needed for the student to accomplish his/her educational goals.  Our presenters will share key points on AT and education law and the process used to determine if a student requires AT including:

• Assistive technology evaluations and AT devices and services in IEPs,
• Funding options for assistive technology in schools with info about applicable laws and regulations,
• Available AT resources in the Southern Tier, and beyond.

The Collaboration Action Team (CAT)
is a monthly meeting in which a variety of community agencies come together to discuss and problem-solve complex challenging case scenarios. The focus is on issues related to individuals with mental health and/or developmental disabilities.
The CAT meeting is held at Southern Tier Independence Center (135 E. Frederick St., Binghamton, NY 13904) on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 11:30 until 1 PM.  Lunch is provided.  Any agency is welcome to join us and discuss or present a scenario on which they are working.  The purpose of this group is to learn about what other agencies offer and to see "what else is out there" when an agency isn't sure how else to help or what to do next when dealing with a difficult situation.

Xscapes are interactive adventure based escape room scenarios. Escape rooms are a rapidly growing popular entertainment adventure. You are part of a team of players who are placed in a room filled with puzzles and the clues that you need to solve the adventure. You have a time limit to escape the scenario successfully. Can your team do it? Are you and your companions observant, logical, problem solvers with the inherent talent and knowledge to win in record time?
Can you collaborate performing as a team, each member applying their particular talents and insights to the challenge at hand, keeping sight of the overall goal?
This isn’t a board room meeting on “team building”, This is the test: Time to Function.
Get yourselves some bragging rights. Think yourselves out of the big box.
Simon Says: Assemble your team, and have some Hands-on fun.
