Why is Smart Steps Developing Mobile Apps for Persons with Disabilities?

Dr. Cindy Fisher, Owner

I am a special educator with over 30 years’ experience teaching students with a variety of disabilities, ages 5-21. Currently, I work with 18 to 21 year-olds in transition services.

My students spend a lot of time in restaurants, in stores, at the public library, on job sites and at the local community college. I noticed common problems they faced and implemented various strategies to help them become more self-sufficient.

One day, it occurred to me that it would be a lot easier if I could incorporate a particular strategy into an smartphone application. Wow, if it could help in this particular situation, what if we had apps to help with other issues? At that point, I realized I was onto something.

Our mission is to identify what students need in the community and then to create mobile applications to make their lives easier. The first app for independent living will be released very soon, so please check back!
