About Us

The Kellar Institute for Human DisAbilities (KIHd) is an interdisciplinary campus-based organization focusing on improving the lives and productivity of children and adults with disabilities. KIHd combines the resources of the university with local, state, regional, national, public, and private sector agencies and organizations to develop products, services, and programs for persons with disabilities.



The Compuwrite Camp is a 2 week, half day camp that fuses educational technology with reading. We are targeting middle and high school students who struggle with reading and would like to learn about different speech– to–text technologies to support and enhance their reading of e-books, emails, social media, hard-copy books and magazines.

Prior to camp, we gather as much information as we can from students and parents to help us make decisions about specific needs. Our teachers promote creativity and interest in using software & apps, reading pens, scanning mice, colored overlays, and much more!

The camp was held annually from 1992 through 2011.
