Our friends in the ACE Centre in Oxford have recently produced a series of short video case studies illustrating different examples of the use of assistive technology to support learners with disabilities. There are 8 videos in the series:
- Aroob - The use of an iPod Touch with a communication app to support a mainstream primary pupil with aphasia following a stroke.
- Claire - A university student with cerebral palsy who uses a ruggedised tablet computer, accessed with a joystick and switch, to support her studies.
- Sandip - An adult with cerebral palsy demonstrates the impact that using a Lightwriter SL40 has had on his ability to communicate.
- Tamsin - A pupil in a mainstream primary school uses eye-pointing with a Look2Talk communication book to communicate with her peers and also uses a Tellus communication aid to access the curriculum.
- Tiago - A pupil with cerebral palsy uses a Tobii C12 eye-gaze system to communicate with staff and his fellow pupils and to access the curriculum.
- Darren - A Proxtalker communication aid finally provides a student with autistic spectrum disorder with an effective communication method.
- Kalvin, Mayar and Craig - Three secondary students with physical disabilities and learning needs use switches and low tech communication systems.
- Patrick - A pupil in a primary school uses an alternative keyboard and mouse to access the same software as his peers.
