Technology and the Autism Spectrum Condition learner: What works and why

training courseNewsletter

Get news, articles, advice and tips.

How do we learn about the technology that can support students with Additional Support Needs, disabilities or sensory impairment? There is very little offered in Initial Teacher Education or Post Graduate education programmes  so new teachers, who are familiar with and confident in the use of technology, go into their classroom and don't know what could be useful or, are constrained by the availability/ standard school equipment, poor bandwidth or the 'locked down', one size fits all set up.

This is how we plan to tackle these 2 issues

Provide high quality Professional Learning opportunities

CALL Scotland offer a wide range of Professional Learning options to help meet your personal training requirements at a time and place that is convenient to you and at a reasonable cost.

  • Seminars (9:30am – 12:30pm) with additional hands on structured workshops from (1:30 – 3:30pm) to give participants the chance to have hands-on practice of the inclusive digital technologies discussed in the morning seminar.
  • Full day (9:30 – 3:30pm) courses delivered by our expert staff and designed to provide you with the technology skills to best support your students with additional support needs / disabilities
  • In addition, we have a range of options which do not require you to travel to our offices here at the University of Edinburgh

Email shirley.lawson@ed.ac.uk for further details or to discuss any of your training requirements.

To get to the bottom of  why more technology is not being used to support students with additional support needs /disabilities

It will take less than five minutes to complete. We will take it forward your feedback as part of our national remit to help children and young people across Scotland overcome disability and barriers to learning created by their environment, and to fulfil their potential.
