An Overview of Assistive Technology

FREE

eLearning

The development of technology that can assist those who have dyslexia, as well those who have other types of disability, to cope with certain tasks that they find difficult has transformed the landscape of coping strategies that we are able to offer to these individuals. This is a specialised field, however, and there is not generally a great awareness amongst the education/work population of exactly what is available.
