CALL Scotland – Provides specialist expertise in technology for children who have speech, communication and/or writing difficulties, in schools across Scotland.

Ruby Rennie Panter‘s insight:

Some useful thoughts about supporting children, from Paul Nisbet: "If someone in Primary 5 is dyspraxic and consequently has slow and illegible handwriting then it’s time to stop causing them grief and time to start helping them to access the curriculum. Forcing a pupil to continue writing by hand when there are easier, faster and more effective methods is not good practice. It risks disengagement, prevents them from accessing educational opportunities and creates low self-esteem. It’s not successful, not confident, not responsible, not effective and not what schools should be doing."
