Students with Disabilities and Technology

Students with disabilities and technology. There are many ways that technology helps students with disabilities. As we know, many students have disabilities where they cannot write like others do. This is where voice to text plays a crucial role. This also helps students who are visually impaired process visual information.

 Adaptive computing technology allows the student to conquer challenging tasks using digital devices. JAWS is a wonderful invention and allows students with vision loss use a computer successfully.

 At Action we use systems that help students to overcome barriers and limitations. We provide specialized computers for improved communication and learning. We pay extra attention to the potential of the student and their journey into the workplace. We prefer teaching advanced computer skills and implement applications that improve on the overall learning experience.

Our classes consist of user friendly solutions and accommodations, aiming to be a happy and comfortable training center for all students. Students with disabilities and technology shouldn’t be a difficult process.

We are obligated as business owners and communities to ensure that people with disabilities are not disadvantaged in society. We urge all employers and the community to be considerate and assist where possible where these groups of people are concerned.

Many students with disabilities use technology and they enjoy helping others too. Our training staff are people with disabilities too and this works perfectly as there is a common understanding. Through technology we are able to empower students with the correct literacy and resources so that they can succeed in life.

Technology gives trainers and students an edge by introducing new opportunities for growth and confidence.
