ATSS Highland – Covid-19: Closure of Schools

The Assistive Technology Support Service (ATSS) will be available for online help and support during the school closure period.

ATSS can help with advice and practical support around Highland’s School technology (Google Classroom, etc.) but also more specialised access around reading and writing supports for all the digital material that many pupils have difficulty with – and we’re likely to be seeing a lot more of it than usual over the coming weeks, perhaps months.

We can help with, amongst other things, reading support apps for iPad, PC, and Chrome. We can also help with supportive writing tools for iPad, Chrome, and PC.

Get in touch by contacting me (Alan Stewart) and we can take things from there.
