Assistive technology and equipment

School-age children have busy lives.

They are learning, socialising, finding new interests and skills at home, school and in the community. This may be with a local club or their sports team, for example. Assistive technology and equipment may now be part of daily life for school age children with cerebral palsy. Assistive technology helps children with cerebral palsy (CP) to access their school curriculum, such as doing the class and homework on their communication device or using mobility aids to take part in sport.

Assistive technology for communication can also help children follow complex instructions and expectations at school and in the community. There are many assistive technology options available, including movement, mobility, self-care, communication, sport, learning, postural support and seating. These aids can assist children to do what is important to them in a safe, efficient and effective way.
