Discover how Aidis Trust has implemented Read&Write throughout the organization
The Aidis Trust is a charity providing free impartial advice and support, with the aim to empower disabled people across the UK to optimise their potential. The trust has been around for the past 40 years, continuously offering advice to the disabled community on assistive technology and creating awareness of how it can help improve their everyday lives.
As a charity which offers advice to not just students but people of all ages, Aidis Trust reaches out to those with a variety of different needs and requirements.
‘What can be achieved by disabled people with the aid of technology can be truly amazing. Non-disabled people often take for granted the ability to communicate both verbally and electronically by using either their voice or technologies such as the Internet. It is also common for people to assume that many disabled people, through their disability, are unable to achieve the same results.’
Aidis Trust thrives to inform those most in need with the advantages that technology can offer, seeking to reduce their isolation through inclusion and communication. One of the key areas the company focuses on, is to improve individuals ability to read and write.
“The people who need our help and advice, do generally struggle with areas of reading and writing. That is why we sought out a tool for those who need it.”
