Assistive technology and equipment

There is so much for young children to explore and learn!

Assistive technology for communication, helps children with CP to learn to speak and to understand. Assistive technology also helps prevent frustration caused by the inability to do most basic things, such as talk and move around. For some children, assistive technology and equipment will form an integral part of daily life, either to be used most of the time or just sometimes when the need arises. There is a vast range of assistive technology and equipment solutions that can support your child’s individual goals across areas including movement and mobility, positioning, self-care, communication, play, learning at home and school and mealtimes.
