Assistive Technology Training
Assistive Technology can support with lots of different aspects of work. From mind mapping programmes to spell checkers, there are many tools that make work easier.
This is strategy based training that will ensure you get the most out of your technology, and you’re able to use it in a way that will transform the way you work.
We can help you develop important strategies that will help you manage different aspects of your role, such as:
- Reading & proofreading
- Time management
- Mental health and wellbeing
We believe that whilst extremely useful, assistive software can be difficult to get your head around. Having specialist training tailored around your needs and your work makes a huge difference in using it effectively.
Our experienced trainers have detailed knowledge of Assistive Technology as well as a vast array of complementary open source and free apps. Training would typically be provided in your place of work and a session usually lasts two to three hours – but that depends on your preference and your allocation of support.
“If my brain is a jigsaw, what I was shown today was one of the missing pieces.
“I can’t begin to explain how overwhelmed I feel after this session. The software Jacob at D&A tutored me on has provided a solution to a problem that I couldn’t articulate but have struggled with for 35 years.”
Michael at D&A is an extremely good teacher. He’s patient and understands my needs completely. In the past I have not had access to this level of support however Michael’s expertise and personal skills go further than one would expect.
