sen/ict – an innovative new directory for special needs education and technology.

The sen / ict directory is a fantastic new online resource which aims to collate and organise all the information relating to special needs and special education across the web, as well as offline sources. A really useful idea, the directory aims to provide an online resource for teachers, parents and professionals from which they can find out about new inventions, products, schemes and other valuable information.

The brainchild of entrepreneur Chris Thornton, a graduate in Graphic Design, who has worked in the assistive technology sector since graduating and is very well qualified person to lead the project. The new senict directory is set to become a vital resource for many and certainly something that we at Trabasack are supporting. Chris has valuable experience from his previous experience at  Inclusive Technology Ltd and where he was Project Manager for the excellent HelpKidzLearn and  News-2-You
he also had leading software design roles on Matrix Maker and Myzone .

Our friends at Skoog are already listed as the first product in the directory. As well as Skoog you can find many other fantastic resources on the site including links to useful events such as Kidz up North. There are also many charities already listed from Contact a Family to Whizz Kids who are provide useful services to parents of children with special needs as well as their teachers and carers. Despite only being launched this year it shows the extent to which the directory is becoming a well known resource base.

Perhaps most importantly for parents, teachers and carers there is already a large database of downloadable and accessible resources building up on the site. From CBBC Switch Games to Camera Mouse, this is a good starting place for anybody looking for tools to improve or support a person with special educational needs.

You can access the directory via their website but they also have profiles on Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and their own blog. We believe this is a resource base that provides a service currently unavailable online. Filling this demand will ensure that it will soon become invaluable to anybody working with or caring for those with additional needs.

So do have a look and tell friends and companies about it, they will find it useful to list events, jobs and charities. Check out the SEN/ICT (senict.com) directory at Special Needs & ICT Resources website including SEN Software, Hardware, Equipment, Services, Jobs, Events, Charities and Company Listings.
