About the Allison Keller Education Technology Program

Realizing the gains that many people with autism have achieved using the iPad, the Allison Keller Education Technology Program was created in honor of Flutie Foundation Board Member Kevin Lane Keller's daughter Allison. The goal of the program is to help fill the financial and technological gap for schools and organizations that assist individuals with autism. Since 2012, the Flutie Foundation has granted over $320,000 to 69 schools and organizations for programs specifically serving individuals with autism that have an established technology program in place or have expressed an interest in starting a program using the iPad or other technology tools.

Applications will be considered for any technology tools and/or training that improve learning outcomes or performance. Maximum request is $5,000.00. Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Tablets & Accessories
  • Apps
  • Smartboards
  • Laptops
  • Technology Training

Applicants must show evidence of a current curriculum that is utilizing education technology or outline their plan for instituting a program and for training staff on appropriate use of the technology and associated apps. One program per public school district is eligible to be awarded an Allison Keller Education Technology grant annually.
