Assistive Technology Training Services
It is important to learn how to use your assistive technology aids in order to ensure that you gain best benefits from all of the features of the software and equipment that you have been provided with.
Even if you have good computer skills, you’ll probably find it helps to have an experienced specialist trainer on hand to work out how assistive technology aids can help achieve study or employment goals.
If you have received equipment and assistive software following recommendations made by an Assessment Centre you should also have been recommended specialist training.. You are strongly advised to take up this training .
You can also seek further training later on if you have had your equipment for a while and feel you need reminding how to use it properly. You might seek advanced training to learn how to do new things that crop up on your course .
Contact your Assessment Centre if you think you need to arrange more training.
Assessment Centres can provide general workshops and training for tutors, advisers or others who have an interest in the education and employment of people with disabilities and the applications of assistive technology or specialist strategies.
Contact your local Assessment Centre for information on the training they can offer.
