Bio for Dr. Heipp

And, his expertise in assistive technology has enabled him to create updated approaches when working with students and educators. Dr. Heipp firmly believes that everyone, no matter what their ability, has a voice (or spirit) and deserves a chance to succeed. He suggests that we never doubt their abilities!

“All individuals have an inner voice that brings much to this world. Unfortunately, there are some who are not as easily able to express that inner voice due to having differing abilities from others. I work with schools, hospitals, and businesses to create the best solutions for every individual to share that voice.” - Dr. Heipp
