Organised by: Valerie Moore
This event will provide information on preparing for higher education, application routes and processes and the support services available to students with disabilities and learning difference.
It will be of interest to second-level students with disabilities and learning difference and their families, schools and support agencies.
It will also be of interest to people with disabilities and learning difference in the community who are interested in studying at IT Tralee.
Assistive Technology is proving very beneficial to many of our students and the seminar dedicates time to learning more about AT through demonstrations and presentations on freeware and other AT. We also have a limited number of earlier edition AT software packages to give away which may be of benefit to prospective students.
