As a leader in the special needs software and
assistive technology industry, VTree, Inc. has developed a solution to
make a real difference in the lives of children and persons with
disabilities, enabling them to participate in community life and to
achieve a higher level of satisfaction with their lives. Our virtual
reality software is a unique, interactive learning system which includes
rehabilitative, educational, and practical life skill / employment based
modules and software. The most important part of a VTree, Inc. solution,
and their overall philosophy, is that the method is fun.
These special needs software programs can be manipulated to match the
operator's level of competency. In other words, all children and adults

the computer screen. They see themselves on the computer screen and
manipulate the virtual environments by simply using any part of
themselves, including their wheelchairs where necessary. Hand-eye
coordination, balance, and social skills are all positively affected
while enjoying a fun virtual experience that simulates play.
For specific educational software needs, our occupational and
rehabilitative software includes practical, life-experience scenarios.
An older child or patient can learn to sort laundry and operate washing
machines in a virtual environment. These assistive technology programs
contain many of the practical applications necessary for persons with
disabilities to master.
VTree, Inc. has gone that extra mile by understanding and adapting
assessment into all areas of educational software. Their unique I-C-ME
systems can be adapted to allow the teacher, therapist, or other
professional to capture data required in evaluations and progress
tracking. The data collection utilized by this solution is far superior
to any found in the industry. Multiple children and patients together
can also utilize the I-C-ME assessment system to capture inclusive
