Comprehensive Services receives Kindles

(Continued)

MT. VERNON —

For clients whose special needs may result in them getting frustrated, the Kindles even provide a "cool-down" app, which helps them count down from 10 to calm their tempers, Henry said, adding that it has been a very successful tool.

"We have seen reduced behaviors in the last 45 days," she said. "When we see them day in and day out, they don't always want to follow what we say, but they're excited to use the Kindles and do what they say."

She said clients in developmental training, which takes place five days a week, are pleased to be able to use cutting-edge technology to learn.

"We don't always have all the tech here," she said. "They know it's new, and they're excited to get to use it."

Henry said Jefferson County Comprehensive Services is currently accepting donations of any technology, crafts or other donations they might be able to use with their clients.
