Assistive Technology Training


Our trainers take time to understand an individual’s needs and what areas they have difficulties with. Each training session is then tailored to suit. This individualised training plan ensures learners become competent in using their technology to the full.

Where possible, we try to use actual tasks during each training session so individuals know how to use their technology in everyday life. For example, during student training we may use an essay or project and show how using the new technology can make this task easier.

Each year our trainers are re-trained in new training techniques, re-trained by the software developers and keep up to date with accredited training by the British Dyslexia Association, and the Institute of I.T. Training among others.
