Model for Success
We begin by learning about the aspirations and hopes of the people we serve. Then, we identify the assistive technologies that overcome challenges to their independence.
Training & Transition
Training and ongoing support enable each person to best use their assistive technology solution at home, in school, at work, and in the community.d
With privacy respected and honored, we offer twenty-four hour per day monitoring services for safety and security.
To promote autonomy and independence with safety, security and privacy, we use smart, assistive technology. We offer assessments, training, transition support, and monitoring. These technologies are embedded throughout the full spectrum of the support we offer.

Steps to success
During an initial assessment, the MidState team takes the time to learn about the aspirations, hopes, and dreams of each individual living with IDD who we serve. The goal of the assessment is to determine the right assistive technology products, devices, and apps for them.
The MidState team also conducts an assessment of each individual’s living environment to further determine the necessary assistive technologies to ensure their safety and independence. Upon completing the assessment, the MidState team provides assistive technology training and ongoing transition support to enable each person to use their assistive technology solutions, so they can maintain or gain greater independence.
Through real-time interactive in-home support services, assistive technology can lead the way towards less reliance on in-home caregivers, as well as improved quality of life and enhanced safety for each individual.
