We have Speech Pathologists and Occupational Therapists who can help you find technology and devices that will make it easier for you to interact and communicate with others and do everyday activities in your home, at school or at work.
You will be assessed by our specialists who can recommend the most suitable technology to assist your specific needs. This may include adapted mouse, keyboard and switch options, software, text or picture-based books, visual aids and communication devices.
With the right equipment and technology, you will be able to improve the way you use computers and the internet, how you communicate with others and your ability to do tasks and use appliances and equipment around the house or at school or work. You will benefit from increased independence and improved communication skills.
Through the Northcott Loan Pool, we can also recommend equipment for you to trial and where appropriate, help you find funding options to purchase the best equipment for you.
If you are going through a medico-legal process, we can also assess your long term technology requirements to make sure your needs are looked after in the future.
Your family, friends, carers and teachers will also be able to take part in equipment and technology training sessions provided by our therapists.
