Technology is changing and with it, breaking down barriers to communication for people with disabilities.
MAIN is aware that in this ever advancing technological environment, there are new devices, apps, services, sites and more that can advance the world of disabilities around communication, learning, sensory stimulation and much more.
This exciting full day conference is aimed at anyone who would like to understand more about how to best use iPads as a communication aid for people with Autism and related disabilities.
Ian Bean refers to himself as “The ICT man”. Ian was the ICT teacher and curriculum coordinator at Priory Woods School in Middlesbrough which is internationally recognised as an example of best practice in the use of ICT to support teaching and learning for students with severe and complex difficulties including Autism.
All profits from this training go to towards improving the lives of individuals and families on the autism spectrum.
When & Where
At MAIN we support people, not ‘cases’ or ‘numbers’.
We exist to offer advice and services tailored to each individual and family living with Autism to raise their aspirations, empower themselves, and have the confidence to be proud to ‘wear their t-shirt with a smile’.
Our ambition is to change society’s perceptions of Autism, and increase understanding of the challenges and opportunities living with Autism brings.
As a group of dedicated parents, who have each individually adapted to living with Autism in it’s various forms, the MAIN Project team ultimately offer first hand support and advice to people of all ages living with Autism.
