To take Thrive, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities. A closed-caption version is also available. We advise you to have all other programs or applications turned off, including music, video clips and Instant Messaging. If you do not have these system requirements at home, please check out your local library or cyber cafe for internet access. Thrive should not be taken by cell phone but is available on tablet, desktop or laptop. Also, see the Troubleshooting Guide for more information.
