The TAPit platform is the Touch Accessible Platform for Interactive Technology. It is the first assistive, learning center using "intended touch" to serve each individual's special needs.
Intended touch technology enables students of varying abilities to interact with the screen.

The TAPit platform makes learning attainable to help build confidence and reach new goals.
TAPit is the first ADA compliant interactive learning station designed to recognize the difference between an arm resting upon the screen and a finger or assistive device intentionally tapping an image.
The TAPit platform is within reach for people using wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices, providing full access to the screen with easy adjustments that adapt to individualized needs.
With the touch of a button, the TAPit platform can move up or down and the 42" interactive LCD panel can be tilted from 0 - 90 degrees.

Anyone can operate the screen using a finger, assistive device, or reach stick. Large icons help them select the correct target to make their choices. This helps to accommodate their lack of precision and accuracy in directing the mouse pointer, also aiding with involuntary arm movements. The work area is designed to ensure that the majority of users are able to reach the entire surface.
Finger touch input keeps hands free of pen tools that interfere with signing. Interactive media keeps users engaged. They can read from the board and sign at the same time, increasing opportunities for communication.
The TAPit platform offers ongoing visual reinforcement to complement lessons and improve functional capabilities. While their eye movement increases, users with ASD, ADD, etc, can track content with greater ease. The physical interaction and visual stimulus offers an additional sensory channel to help process information.
The TAPit platform works with any software on your computer allowing teachers and therapists to resize text and graphics, adjust brightness or contrast controls, and enlarge images or change background colors within seconds. The low-glare, matte finish display is shadow-free, providing optimal viewing for low-vision users.
The TAPit platform works with virtually all educational and assistive software programs that you’re currently using on your classroom computer. Name a program, and TAPit makes it better in a big way. The large, touch-sensitive screen supports the use of on-screen keyboards or voice recognition for typing; switch/scanning for mouse control or cause/effect programs; screen readers for text-to-speech capability; as well as screen magnification programs. We also offer software from three of the world’s leading educational software developers.
