Unit in Developing Literacy Skills with Assistive Technology (DACPD96)

This unit provides resources that support the development of literacy skills through the use of assistive technology in learning environments and in the workplace. It will introduce approaches utilising assistive technology that can enable individuals with dyslexia and diverse needs to overcome barriers that add pressure to literacy, planning and organisational tasks. It will show how assistive technology enables individuals to complete literacy tasks successfully with a focus on cultivating learner autonomy. The emphasis of this unit is on critical evaluation of relevant teaching strategies and creating individual assistive technology ‘toolkits’ to support a range of needs.

Learning Outcomes - On completion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of assistive technology in the context of the legislative environment
  • Identify how assistive technology can support individuals across different learning and workplace settings
  • Analyse the importance of assistive technology in the context of memory and organisational skills
  • Review the assistive technology context for the individual and determine appropriate technology for their use.
