During the webinar I will show you the main features of ClaroRead and focus on how it can be used in the classroom and during exams. Bring your questions and contact us if you would like a free individual copy.
The DSA Portal: SEN: Join the community and start a conversation, to gain the advice you need to help provide the best support for your students
For those who support students with additional needs or disabilities, it can often feel as if we are working in isolation from our colleagues. It can also be difficult to communicate with our peers to discuss support strategies and the latest developments in assistive technology. The Student Support Portal was set up to provide an on-line community for professionals, students and parents to share best practice and engage with the assistive technology publishers and manufacturers.
Presentation by Inspiration : Inspiration 10: helping students with SpLDs and Anxiety to visually organise their thoughts, communicate their ideas, structure writing & retain information
Learn how the simplicity of Inspiration and its highly visual approach is helping students with SpLDs and anxiety to succeed; for planning and organising, communicating ideas, making notes, writing, revision and creating presentations.
Students quickly capture and develop their ideas graphically, kick start the writing process by adding notes and outlining; then either transfer their work to Word or PowerPoint.
A popular recommendation by needs assessors and a go-to-favourite for many schools, colleges and universities, Inspiration has many built-in accessibility features such as the rapid fire tool, large symbols library, text-to-speech, talking interface, audio notes, highly customisable interface and more!

Learning Labs : SEN: Get the most out of your assistive technology (AT) for learners and teachers with the e-learning portal, Learning Labs
More and more schools are using assistive software programs to support diverse learning needs. This often includes text to speech, dictation and mindmapping tools, but doesn’t include the support on how to use such programs.
Learning Labs is an e-learning portal with over 3,000 tutorials (or ‘Labs,’ as we call them) designed to help assistive technology (AT) users to get the most out of their AT.
Join us to discover how Learning Labs can offer ongoing e-learning support for your pupils and teachers on understanding everything your AT has to offer. Plus, get your own free trial licence.
Presentation by BATA (British Assistive Technology Association) : Preparing your SEND students for university - get a head start with the Disabled Student Allowance programme
This session will cover the Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA) system, including the benefits of applying, the application process and what is involved in the DSA Assessment of Need and the types of equipment, assistive software and one to one support that can be funded via the DSA.
Wordshark Online: Helping SEND students to succeed with spelling - using the new whole school web-based solution: Wordshark Online!
We will present Wordshark Online, our new whole school solution helping SEND students to succeed with spelling, as well as challenging high achievers to develop their spelling vocabulary.
New age-neutral graphics make the program usable with a wide age range including secondary.
Based on the highly successful classic Wordshark, the online version adds a placement test and a course with automatic progression, thus freeing up teacher time to concentrate help where it is needed most.
We can also show you how to create lists of your own, and to set work to support individual students.
