Assistive Technology

Assistive technology assists an individual in their everyday living. AT is an integral part of school life, community homes and ELMS enabling a person to interact with and control the environment they are in. AT promotes independence and autonomy which helps build confidence and self-esteem. The technology is tailored to the individual’s needs and can help them to access communication, learning, leisure, sensory experiences and environmental control.

We have a small, experienced team of staff dedicated to working with technology. They work closely with the wider therapy team to assess and provide the best AT solutions.

Our team of experienced therapy staff, based at our main Roe Head site in Mirfield, provide health and wellbeing support. They ensure that health needs are managed and the highest standard of care is achieved. Our therapists also play a major role in the ongoing support and training of other Hollybank Trust staff in their daily management of the children and adults who live within the Trust.
