Donka’s mobile instructor can help you get the most out of your assistive technology, whether you’re using the computer for the first time or just want a refresher course. Donka can come to you, and training can be conducted either on your workstation or Donka’s laptop.

Donka, Inc. accepts transition students who are moving from a school-based environment to adult services, and adults over 21 years of age for mobile services. Students must also reside in DuPage, Kane, or approved parts of Will County and Cook County, and have an open case with the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) to qualify for services.
Traditionally, a Donka transition student has physical disabilities, visual impairments or learning disabilities and is between the ages of 18 – 21 years of age. Prior to joining Donka, the transition student is supported by his/her high school to provide an outcome-based program that teaches real-life skills in age-appropriate, natural environments.
The transition program philosophy is to provide an environment which encourages self-growth for the students as they work toward their personal goals. Goals are developed collaboratively between students, family, and transition staff using a person-centered approach. The goal of the program is for students to be prepared and linked to the services they need upon their exit from school-based services whether it is employment, day programs, college, volunteering or adult living. The linkage is individual and personal to each student.
The adult student is typically someone who has a type of barrier that would like to enter or re-enter the workforce and need specific assistive technology training and/or specific software needed for success in the workplace. Donka instructional staff can work with the adult student in their home or workplace to access the abilities and employment goals and recommend assistive technology needed and provide training.

- Emotional disability
- Hearing impairments
- Intellectual disability
- Multiple disabilities

- Specific learning disabilities
- Speech or language impairment
- Traumatic brain injury, and visual impairment
