Participants involved in SS2to have shown an interest in computers and IT technology. And requested to be able to use computers as part of their learning.
So Harry and myself did some research on how we could involved IT technology as part of the life skills sessions.
Most people who receive a service from SS2to, don't have access to computers, therefore, we used the funding to get a laptop, and educational software. The software is interactive, covering Reading, Writing and Math skills.
Using the tablets was a new experience for most.
People enjoyed the touch screen facility, which improved their dexterity and hand to eye co-ordination.
We also included an Autism Sensory program with the Tablets, which people found to be focused relaxation, this helps reduce anxiety. Finding ways to reduce anxiety, enables people to more fully engage in the learning experience.
