Assistive & Learning Technology 

We have extensive experience in all areas of Augmentative and Alternative Communication including high tech speech generating devices, software and access methods e.g switch selection and eye gaze, and are able to develop these to meet each individual's needs.  These are now much more than purely for communication and can be used as environmental controls and for games, social media, telephone calls and texts, e-mailing, word processing plus many more functions.  Our knowledge in these areas means we are able to provide advice and training in rounded solutions to support people with disabilities (including visual impairment, acquired and traumatic brain injury and communication difficulties). We are able to assist from initial needs assessments and writing reports for use in the application for funding to the implementation of Assistive Technology including ongoing work and training of existing and new support workers.

Working closely with case managers and occupational therapists to provide a seamless experience for the client, our Assistive Technology Specialist, Lizzie, is a teacher by background and will not only specify and provide the technology, but also effectively train the client, family, team and support staff too, ensuring successful take-up. From simple, but life changing environmental controls using the latest technology available today, our specialist is also an expert in grid and eye gaze technology for more complex cases.

Sherwood Therapy Services provides assessment, training and consultancy in the field of specialist technology.  We work with organisations and education providers offering a range of services including assessments, report writing to assist with funding, implementation of the recommended technology and training to use and programming of the technology.
