Site upgrade provides more SEND tools for families in Warwickshire
CHILDREN and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) in Warwickshire now have more accessibility tools to use.
The additional resources are due to an upgrade to the Warwickshire SEND Local Offer website.
The site brings together information, advice, resources and support on SEND topics, including health, education, social care and more.
New accessibility features are provided by additional software called the ReachDeck Toolbar which can translate selected text into over 100 languages, simplify web pages, read text aloud and at slower or faster speeds fast.
The tool can be accessed by clicking on the headphones symbol in the upper right corner of any of the local offer pages.
Councilor Penny-Anne O’Donnell, of Warwickshire County Council, said: ‘We want our local offer to be the best possible for children and young people, parents, education professionals and anyone who seek support and advice. This ReachDeck tool is an exciting addition to our local offering and supports our ongoing work to ensure children and young people in Warwickshire lead fulfilling lives and are part of their communities.
