Presented by Mike Williams
Saturday 6th May 2017

At the Helen Arkell Centre
Mike Williams has worked in the field of assistive technology for the last 30 years. He regularly delivers assessments, training and support for people of all ages with specific learning difficulties as well as for people with disabilities like visual impairment, physical, communication and language difficulties etc.
In this workshop, Mike will demonstrate a range of technologies offering support for children and adults with dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties. Some of these technologies support areas like reading and writing whilst others provide support with organisation, planning, memory and use of audio for notetaking and recording ideas etc.
Mike will include free and low cost software and apps as well as the more “tried and tested” (not free!) software products. The technologies will be demonstrated on a computer, tablet and smart phone. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions during the workshop.
