Introduce your school

Mabel Prichard School is a special needs school for pupils with SLD, PMLD, autism and Down's syndrome.

What do you want?

We would like to buy accessible computer for all the pupils in the school. These computers would have a touch screen .

Who is this for?

This is for the benefit of the whole school.

Why do you want it?

The pupils at present only have access to old laptops to support their learning. If the pupils could have access to a touch screen computer, they would be able to control more programs. This would especially help those who are visually impaired or have a physically disability, which takes in a large percentage of the students at our school.
