Learning difficulties – such as poor language skills, problems with comprehension, or dyslexia – may be undiagnosed or unacknowledged, thus holding learners back. This college embeds two kinds of assistive software – a text help tool, which reads text aloud and checks spelling, and a mind-mapping tool – as mainstream applications for use by all learners, whatever their age or level of ability, rather than restricting them to specialist use.
