Assistive Technology (AT) can be the key to some learners’ success within education. An early and positive experience with AT while in Primary Education will equip the learner with the skills and attitude that will provide the solid foundation they will need as they progress through second level and beyond. This course is aimed at teachers, special needs assistants, parents and anybody else with an interest in harnessing digital technologies to support children in Primary Level education and create expert learners. 

If you are the parent of a child with a disability who might benefit from AT we invite you to use the code below to get 50% off the cost of this course.  We trust that this reduced fee only be used solely by parents to access this course.
