Details:
TASSCC provides a service for children whose learning or communication difficulties can be helped by computer technology. Pupils aged 3-18 whose education is provided by Aberdeen City Council may benefit from additional technology to assist with reading, writing/recording or accessing the curriculum. Also pupils aged 0-19 with little or no speech may benefit from technology to assist communication. A TASSCC referral is usually done through the school. Parents must be informed and agree that a referral can be made. TASSCC must obtain parental permission to access information from any other professionals working with the child. Once parental permission is given, the TASSCC team will visit to assess whether or not technology may be helpful. Loans are made on a short or long term basis depending on individual needs and any pupil who needs technology to write will be allowed to use it in assessments and examinations.
