Assistive Technology Advice Service

There are many technologies which can help solve some of the problems faced by people with dyslexia in everyday life, education and employment. The range of technologies available is constantly evolving and growing.

Since 2014, DAI have been running Tablet Technology and Dyslexia Workshops. The aim of these interactive workshops is to equip delegates with knowledge of how tablet technology and apps can be used to the benefit of people with dyslexia. A range of different apps and tablet features are demonstrated. Please visit the Events section of the website for further information and booking forms.

We can also provide general information about assistive technology through our Information Service – please call 01 877 6001 or email Our information days for parents and courses for teachers also contain sections on assistive technology.

Visit our Computers and Technology section on this website for further info on how technology can help.
