Request assistive technology* from The School of Special Educational Needs: Disability

*The School of Special Educational Needs: Disability (SSEND) defines assistive technology according to the World Health Organisation definition, which incorporates specialised student equipment.

The Request for Assistance Assistive Technology (RFAAT) provides support to schools with students enrolled with an identified disability. Assistive Technology (AT) provided by SSEND is categorised under two areas:

1. Student equipment such as hoists, slings, seating and modified desks
2. ICT and peripherals such as laptop computers and specialised keyboards and input devices

SSEND will provide time limited AT trials of hardware (ICT and peripherals) to assess the suitability of devices to assist schools with appropriate purchase decision making.
