UK centre uses technology to help intellectual disability

Monday, 1 February 2010 10:03am

The Rix Centre, based at the University of East London, is running a project called Click Start to provide accessible online information for people with intellectual and learning difficulties. 

The work of the Rix Centre includes training carers and staff, as well as people with intellectual and learning difficulties, to create websites using its ‘Easy Build’ tools that make it simpler to develop a website portal. 

The Centre also undertakes research and development into the use of new media technology to assist its client base, and runs courses in advocacy. 

For more information, see the Rix Centre website.
