We aim to be accessible and welcoming to everyone
The Learning centres have a portable Hearing Loop System. Should you or someone else require the equipment within the centres, please go to reception where a member of staff will be able to assist.
ColorVeil adds a customizable color filter over your Desktop, Internet browser, video player, document, email, or program. You can work, play, read, write, or browse as usual. This software is installed in a number of PCs in the Learning Centres and Libraries.
Dyslexia Support for Staff
Read the leaflet below to find out more about our Dyslexia support for staff.
Supporting Staff - Understanding Dyslexia
Our classrooms contain Learner Support Boxes containing the following resources:
Magnifying reading screens are available to assist with reading and to aid those with a visual impairment.
Coloured overlays are also available for training to aid in visual dyslexia and visual strain. The overlays have a shiny side and a matt side to provide improved usability over a range of lighting conditions. Reading from the shiny side gives a subjectively crisper appearance to the underlying text, but can reflect overhead lighting. The matt side trades slightly decreased clarity for less reflection.
The Reading Ruler is a flexible transparent coloured plastic strip with a tracking line . The reading ruler is made of a transparent plastic that both underlines the text and highlights it in a coloured tint. Simply read the text through the plastic strip of your preferred colour, and track down the page.
