Assistive technologies

In this video, we hear from Jules Daulby about assistive technologies.

In this video, we hear from Jules Daulby in an interview with Iesha Small about approaches to the use of educational technologies for pupils with SEND.

Key learning points from this case study

  • Technology to support pupils with SEND should be embedded rather than added on
  • There are a number of tools that can support all pupils, regardless of additional need
  • Support to build skills and confidence in using assistive technologies is essential
  • Audit existing assistive technologies school already has and learn how to use them
  • School IT departments should face out to teachers and work collaboratively
