Assistive Devices and Equipment

Assistive Technology

Assistive Technology is a general term that includes assistive, adaptive, or rehabilitative devices for people with disabilities. To help students with SEN become more independent in their studies and daily routines, some assistive devices / software are available for loan at CEDARS SEN Support. Upon successful registration for the SEN Support Service , with justified needs, students can borrow the assistive devices listed in the table below.

I would like to know more about the availability and the loan procedure.

Please contact your SEN Case Manager if you would like to learn more about the assistive devices / software.
