The last year has been an incredibly challenging time for people as we have all had to adapt to a new way of living and going about our daily lives and routines. One of the advantages of working with Safe Care Technologies is seeing and experiencing first-hand how people have greatly benefited from Assistive Technology during these challenging times. Whether someone has used a new joystick to access a computer, learned how to communicate using AAC or has found a piece of software that helps them access their Zoom fitness class, we have seen some incredible people achieve some incredible things.
Sometimes people just need a helping hand to get up and running or become more aware of what options are available to them. For that reason, we want to demonstrate how easy AT can be to use, in fact, how it can be learnt over lunch while having a Ham Sandwich!
The ‘Ham Sandwich Series’ is a free workshop, where product experts from Safe Care will provide users with various tips and tricks on how to get up and running with assistive technology in just 20 minutes. These workshops have been made flexible for individuals at all levels of assistive technology proficiency: parents, children, therapists, and teachers to enhance their level of understanding.
Every block of workshops run for a period of 5 days, 20 minutes each day. Anyone attending the entire course (5 days) will be certified as proficient in the technology.
Following are the first 4 workshops that will be training individuals on communication software and mounting solutions:
- Snap Core First: Designed to be the easiest to use, most intuitive, and consistently arranged communication solution available on the market.
- Boardmaker 7: World’s leading symbol-based special education solution. Supporting learning and communication with customizable material, including access to over 45,000 Picture Communication Symbols® (PCS).
- Communicator 5: Comprehensive text and symbol-based AAC solution offering efficient, flexible communication for people with a wide range of language disabilities.
- Readapt Solutions: mounts range from Wheelchair mounts, table mounts and floor stands, and can connect all types of devices from iPads, smartphones, AAC devices, joysticks and much more.
