Introduction to Free Assistive Technology

A supportive course especially suitable for adults who are dyslexic or think they are dyslexic, and/or have some difficulty with reading and writing. We will look at free technology to help with 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. Learners will share what they discover, and learn from each other. The course tutor will be assisted by Alex King who is a counsellor and is himself dyslexic. Alex makes good use of Assistive Technology in his day-to-day life. Learning objectives include:

  • Use free Assistive Technology to help me read.
  • Use free Assistive Technology to help me with writing and spelling
  • Tell someone about free apps to help with well-being
  • Use free Assistive Technology to help me organise myself.
  • Give information about how Assistive Technology could help me in a work situation

This course is aimed at adults (19+) who are dyslexic, or think they are dyslexic and others who have difficulty with reading and writing.

The course will run for four weeks on a weekly basis – from Tuesday 26 March to 30 April 2019
