Who We Are

Combining her experience and knowledge of computers and passion for art, business owner Linda Christiansen is giving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities an opportunity to discover skills and talents that they and others never thought they had. In 2000, armed with a degree in business, Linda started her own computer company, Delcotechs, which provides PC and Network Solutions in Delaware County and the region. Soon after, she began providing computer training for people with special needs taking on consultant work from various human service providers in the Philadelphia area. What she quickly noticed was the individuals she was working with at the time weren’t engaging. “It became clear that it was boring for them,” she says. “So I tapped into my art background and things took off from there.”


By melding technology and art, Linda was able to draw out people’s innate creativity. This discovery led her to creating, in 2004, her second business, Sillynut.com - art and computer instruction for children, teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism.


Sillynut continues to thrive today!
