ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY SOFTWARE FOR CHILDREN
Over 200 thousand children in the United Kingdom have a learning disability such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia.
As a result, children can struggle to keep up with written assignments and homework. This can be very demotivating and can cause a feeling of segregation due to an inability to keep up with their peers.
Education is crucial and gives the opportunity of success in a chosen career as an adult. Freedom of Speech Ltd is working with educational establishments to increase awareness of learning disabilities such as Dyslexia and to show how Assistive Technology helps.
Assistive Technology has become increasingly popular in schools and colleges in recent years and the results have been phenomenal. The software has reduced a child’s anxiety about their school work & has allowed them to reach grades which pupils, parents and teachers couldn’t have anticipated.
Assistive Technology software has been used in classrooms, at home and even in exams to help children with a learning disability reach their full potential. Breaking the barrier of the disability using Assistive Technology allows a child to flourish and achieve.
Freedom of Speech has worked with many schools across the UK to bespoke software to individual pupil’s requirements or to roll out a software application to a whole school for everyone’s use. We have also spoken with parents directly to help their child with exams and coursework.
Special discounted rates are available for educational establishments.
