My brain works differently than other people. MyGuide lessons are built the way my brain thinks.
MPower Me offers a simple, customizable guide that empowers people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to have control over the aspects of their lives that they choose and prioritize. From medication management to folding laundry, MyGuide reduces the need for human intervention and allows individuals to act with autonomy while facilitating a relationship with a TechMentor.

MyGuide reminds me what to do if I get stuck on something, and when I’m finished, I just swipe to the left and it gives me a new step.
MyGuide allows the clients we serve to have tools that help them achieve independence.
Michelle Hoffmaster, Director of Services, Grafton
When I get really nervous, I can use MyGuide to show me pictures and ask me questions about them so I can think about something else and calm down.
I’ve researched smart home technologies, video modeling, varies list systems, etc., before I learned about MyGuide. MyGuide can integrate all of these evidence-based interventions in one system on one device that is easily customizable. What most draws me to MyGuide as an empowerment tool is how it is designed for individuals to guide their own intervention and develop tools that are meaningful to them.

MyGuide sends a notification to my mom that I did my goodness, so she doesn’t have to annoy me or bring me with her everywhere she goes.
The easy-to-use and highly customizable features allow for quick personalized lessons in the time it takes to create the perfect social media post!
Look at me go! I'm a pretty quick study. Im building a lesson right now!
Trained TechMentor supports are amazing! They provide personalized support, something no other device or program offers. MyGuide is created by and for one client at a time, and that is what makes it truly special.
I use MyGuide to help me order food at a restaurant because I forget the words.
