School and Education

Assistive technology or electronic assistive technology is not just for the home environment – it is now more widely found in the school, education and learning sectors too.

School and Education

Life Skills brings the practical skills of ‘learning to be independent’ into the national curriculum, using specially designed rooms to give context to lessons.

Developing the skills to live independently includes social elements, such as answering the door, making phone calls and initiating conversations, whilst using role play for everyday situations makes learning much more fun.

Students also learn how to use a network of environmental control systems, such as evoassist or Remo Phone, to complete tasks such as ordering a pizza.

The interactive, educational settings give students the opportunity to experience independent living in a safe and secure way, giving them the confidence and knowledge they need to grow into self-sufficient adults.
