Students with Disabilities Can Study Further with a Grant

Students with disabilities can study further with a grant. One of the most awesome things about education is the way technology has bridged the gap for so many students with disabilities.

With the cost of living being so high, it is helpful to have assistance from government and community alike.  At Action4 the blind and disabled, you can learn how to use a computer and software – free of charge with a grant.

For decades, students with disabilities have lagged behind with their assignments or been denied certain classes due to lack of accessible schools and training centers. The truth is that disabled students have never had adequate and fair learning opportunities.

Fortunately, the rapid growth of computer-based technology has created an environment that’s suitable for disabled students.  No more isolation and limited opportunities! Computer programmes are designed with disabled students in mind.  Now they can access information and participate in the joy of learning and becoming independant.

Braille reading and writing techniques have helped the blind and visually impaired continue their education since the 19th century with new assistive computer technologies.  These included mobility, hearing and Braille – but still far behind when we look at technology.

For those who find it difficult to attend colleges,  online learning would seem to be a better option.  The only downside to this option is that there are no tutors on hand to physically assist the student when they may need it.

New technologies are great for students to become successful humans in society.  At Action4 the blind and disabled, there is support all the way through to seeking employment.  Please contact one of their representatives for more info on how to get a study grant for computer training classes or email Ian@action4.co.za.
