In partnership with the LD Network and Dyslexia Support Group West, the Brimbank/Melton LLEN sponsored a workshop on Saturday 14 June on the use and application of Assistive Technologies for young people with learning disabilities. The 3 hour workshop looked at the range of Inclusive Technologies that can be used in schools, universities, workplaces and in the home that support people with learning disabilities in reading, writing, spelling and organisational skills.
The workshops were presented by Jo Evans (M.Ed) Giving the student a voice, Cheryl Dobbs Writing Support and Charlotte Forwood (Phd) Spelling, vocabulary and organisational skills.
The workshop was fully subscribed with 115 registered participants. This is the second year that the partnership organisations have organised this event.
