Guide Dogs this week launch a new service, Tech for All, to help children with a vision impairment access their own devices at home – to support learning, or simply to have fun and explore the interests and activities they enjoy.
Tech for All will provide iPads to visually impaired children aged 3-18 across the UK, whilst secondary school-aged children (11-18) may choose an iPhone instead. The devices have excellent accessibility features built-in and online guides and tutorials will be provided to help them get started and to ensure that they know how to stay safe online.
The devices will be completely free of charge, with the only requirement being proof of vision impairment.
More information can be found at www.guidedogs.org.uk/techforall and applications are scheduled to open on Thursday 22 July. Stocks are limited so apply early to avoid missing out!
