In this section you will find information on equipment to assist your child with computing or communication.
The computing section lists hardware options which may enable people with disabilities to use a computer. This includes for example: alternative keyboards and mice; braile computing equipment such as keyboards and braille displays; touch screens; notetakers and screen magnifiers.
Complex communication solutions are not covered in any depth here - we recommend you speak to an appropriately qualified Speech and Language Therapist or get in touch with the national organisation Communication Matters who support people who find communication difficult because they have little or no clear speech.1
Some of the computing items listed may require software which is not listed on Living made easy. For details of software contact:
