The Department currently has two Enabling Technology Model Homes. These homes are located in Nashville on the former Clover Bottom Developmental Center campus and in Greeneville on the former Greene Valley Developmental Center campus. These homes are designed to showcase the variety of residential technology options available to support a person to live more independently and also provide greater freedom to control their living environment through the use of sensors, remote supports and smart devices.
These homes are available for individual and group guided tours. To schedule a tour at one of the Enabling Tech Homes, please complete this tour request form, and a DIDD technology champion in the region will work to schedule a date and time that works best for you.
In these videos, DIDD East Tech Champion Milton Neuenschwander demonstrates some of the ways Enabling Technology can be used in a residential setting.
