Assistive Technology team

Assistive technology is equipment and software that enhances learning. Although widely used by disabled students, at York St John University, assistive tech is available for all. Assistive technology can be helpful in all parts of learning, from writing essays, to revising for exams and preparing presentations.

Our advisers can support students and staff to get more out of assistive technology. You can book a tutorial for specialist advice with one of the team, or use our recommended self-help online resources.
