Short Breaks Do IT Project

The Inclusive One Touch

Based on the Norfolk Play at IT Project, “Short Breaks Do IT” aims to provide ICT equipment and training for twelve residential short break settings in order for them to be able to extend and expand the activities that they offer children with disabilities.

The kit provided will allow these children and young people to safely access appropriate games and activities, download and play music and make videos and presentations about their interests. The kit provides access aids such as switches, alternative mice, a touch screen computer and even a switch accessible MP3 Player!

The project will provide staff with additional resources in order to facilitate children and young people to:

• Increase independence in using ICT.
• Communicate through play and other media.
• Increase the range of play activities including development of hand-eye skills.
• Involve young people in decision making.
• Provide additional educational opportunities.

The project is a collaboration between the Short Breaks Pathfinder and Access Through Technology, who will be training the staff to use the equipment. Staff will report back with case studies and general reports in order for the project to be evaluated. It is hoped that with these facilities the children and young people will make their voices clearly heard!

Inclusive Technology was delighted to provide a comprehensive kit to enable access for all students. It includes:
