Assistive Technology Appointments

From February 2016 we have been hosting an appointment based system at the Resource Centre for one-to-one sessions with an expert in ‘assistive technology’.  In these 60 minute appointments you are able to discuss all kinds of electronic magnification devices and other helpful gadgets, and see first hand how technology might help you with reading or daily living.  More information here, or to book an appointment please call the office on 01625 422602.
