Physical Impairment

This is an area where learners’ needs are diverse, and any ICT strategy would be quite specific to the individual. However, there are some general strategies you could try initially before contacting the partner services.

ICT strategies

  • Try an alternative access device to make computer use easier, e.g. a rollerball, a keyguard or even an eye-gaze system – contact us if you have questions about this.
  • Change the accessibility options on the device to maximise accuracy, e.g. “sticky keys”, or “slow keys”, or “Assistive Touch” on an iPad.
  • Consider the placing of the computer and chair, and the portability of the chosen device.
