The technology that most young people and learners will have access to is a mobile phone. iPhones and Android phones provide ways in which to increase access to the world, whether through literacy and numeracy, organisational skills, mental health or visual support. 

To ensure that young people have the skills they require to gain employment, live independently and access leisure activities, it is essential that they discover what their phone can do for them. This course will give staff the knowledge so they can support learners and people in care settings to discover accessibility features and apps on phones. This knowledge should reduce people’s requirement for human support to support basic skills. 

This course will cover how mobile phones and related apps can be used to: 

  • read text both on the screen and when printed 
  • provide support for hearing impaired users 
  • develop good habits 
  • support organisation and structure at a range of understanding levels 
  • produce and control using just a voice 
  • support people with dexterity difficulties. 

This is delivered online as a short course and places can be reserved for small numbers of staff. 


The below cost is for each attendee. All attendees need to register separately.

  • Natspec and Karten members £80 +VAT
  • Natspec affiliates £105 +VAT
  • Non-members £125 +VAT

Your invoice will be available immediately.
