Free Assistive Technology Courses for 12-15 Year Olds

Concept Northern have developed online courses designed to develop Study Skills using industry-standard Assistive Software. The courses are designed for S1-S3 pupils (12-15 yrs) but, with parental help, younger kids can utilise these courses too.

For the next three months, these courses are being made available for free.

The software used throughout is Texthelp Read&Write and MindView.


Our pocket Read&Write and MindView courses have been specially developed for young learners with an emphasis on interaction and visual learning. Each course provides an easy entry into using assistive technology for school work with short interactive units which can be done at the student’s own pace. 

These one-hour modules offer accessible, guided experiences that encourage the development of core skills.
