KIRKLAND, Wash., May 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Specially Designed Education Services (SDES) has released the Styer-Fitzgerald Program for Functional Academics to the cloud, adding software capabilities to its suite of specialized educational services. In partnership with Mundo Pato Inc., a cloud publishing services company, SDES is providing a significant step forward in the quality of digitized, cloud-based special education curricula. Designed for educational use in schools and organizations serving children to adults with disabilities, the innovative Styer-Fitzgerald Program has, since its inception, supported a better quality of life, increased independence, and improved outcomes for students with moderate to severe disabilities. The cohesive assessment and comprehensive curriculum span kindergarten through transition, providing continuity across grade levels. Expanding to the cloud extends the Styer-Fitzgerald Program's reach to school districts and treatment centers looking for a digitized solution to their special education needs.
Program data sheets and other educational materials can be time consuming and cumbersome to set up, store, keep track of, and use. In the UnitusTI cloud, digitized curricula and the data produced can be cross-examined, charted, and mapped to enhance academic results, while lowering operational costs and carbon footprints. With security level access and instant data reporting, educators can track student behavior and progress, store documents, collaborate with teaching staff, and securely share progress with parents.
The Styer-Fitzgerald Program in the cloud operates on computers and mobile devices using Android, Apple, and Windows systems. Designing these cloud-based functional academic programs in conjunction with educators, experts, such as Suzanne Fitzgerald at SDES, and a team of EdTech professionals at Mundo Pato Inc., provides a solution which ensures HIPAA, FERPA, and GDPR compliance and alignment with educational programs, IEP goals, and person-centered transition planning.
"As a professor training new special education teachers, I'm thrilled to offer the Styer-Fitzgerald Program in the UnitusTI Cloud to equip and empower current and future generations."—Dr. Candice Styer, program co-author.
The UnitusTI Cloud processing system delivers the Styer-Fitzgerald Program assessment and curriculum lesson plans while tracking data and recording student actions and progress. This is all accomplished in real-time with ongoing reporting and charting for each learner. This gives educators and therapists the ability to make instant, informed adjustments to learning plans thereby enhancing individualized instructional objectives and outcomes.
"The access, accountability, and visibility that EdTech solutions provides to parents, learners, and educators will make a significant impact in the evolution of the educational services template that exists today," said Ricardo Correa, CEO, Mundo Pato, Inc.
