Some students may find it difficult to access the standard computer keyboard
and mouse because of a physical disability or learning difficulty. This brief
document is designed as a starter resource to give you ideas about the sorts of
equipment that may help, and also sources of support and advice.
The Barnsley Assistive Technology team provides specialised computer access
equipment for people with severe physical disabilities at home, but we are not
commissioned to provide assessments for accessing computers at school or
work. The equipment and support discussed in this document is not provided
by the AT team but may work alongside more specialised equipment.
