Introduction to Free Assistive Technology

A supportive course especially suitable for adults who are dyslexic, or think they are dyslexic. We will look at free technology to help with reading, being organised, maths and writing. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own smart phones and tablets so they can explore what they can do using these devices. They will share what they discover, and learn from each other.
