Physical Difficulties & Medical Services

The East SILC is recognized as a leading innovator in the use of Assistive Technology to enable students with diverse physical difficulties to access the curriculum. "Thanks to the work of the ICT service my son has a fantastic IT solution that works for him and is flexible enough to meet all his academic needs. This has lead to him being more independent in his learning and recording of his school work, which in turn has given him the confidence to continue to succeed at school." Jane Sanders.

My son's ICT solution has made him consider the uses of technology in other aspects of his life as a tool for independence.Touchscreens are ideal for cause & effect activities..Three post 16 students demonstrate very different technology solutions..Scaffolding supporting early literacy..EyeGaze systems have made huge strides in recent months..

We invite SENCos, teachers and healthcare professionals to complete a very brief evaluation of an ICT Access Assessment or continuing support assessment for a student with complex needs on the evaluation form below.
