    Hi @Nicole24.

    So sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. We have lots of useful information about assistive technology on our website which may be of interest to you, which includes a list of organisations that may be able to offer some support.

    I've also moved this into our ask an assistive technologist category, where @Andy_Assistive and @Ryan_Assistive may be able to advise.

    Hi @Nicole24, you may also be interested in this page on assistive technology for specific learning difficulties. Hopefully @Andy_Assistive and @Ryan_Assistive will be able to offer some suggestions too!

    Hello @Nicole24

    Firstly thank you for contacting us via the Online Community! Sorry that myself nor my colleague Andy have been able to answering your question any sooner. 

    With regards to any specific technology available that would help you with your learning disabilities, there is many different types available, but many are decided upon your abilities, strengths, weaknesses and areas that you need assistance with. If you are able to give me a more specific description of the areas you would need help with then i will be able to give you advice accordingly, otherwise my advice would be pan-learning disability which you may find is not person centred to your specific individual needs. 

    I look forward to hearing from you again soon, 

    Ryan Kennedy
