Council for Science and Technology: Rapid Evidence Review on Using Assistive Technology to Support Learners with Specific Learning Difficulties
I have been working with the Council for Science and Technology to provide professional expertise alongside structured, systematic review of evidence of how to best support young poeple with specific learning difficulties. The focus of my work was the home and school environment. I reviewed literature on parental views, experiences and roles; teachers’ roles and professional knowledge, and different types of technology to support young people at home and school. I then presented my findings to representatives from the Council for Science and Technology and the Deparment for Education, alongside academics from the University of Cambridge and University College London.
The report on the work is forthcoming and will inform policy at national level.
