Autism Spectrum Disorders (and wider intellectual disabilities)

Blind and Visually impaired

Deaf and Hearing Impaired

Learning disabilities (including reading)

Physical (including chemical and neurological)

  • C-Leg prosthetics – The C-Leg is the original, most popular computerized prosthetic leg
  • Cleaner Indoor Air Campaign – focusing on the importance of cleaner indoor air, especially for those with chemical sensitivities
  • OptiKey – an assistive on-screen keyboard which runs on Windows. It is designed to be used with a low cost eye-tracking device to bring keyboard control, mouse control and speech to people with motor and speech limitations, such as people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) / Motor Neuron Disease (MND)

Sensory processing

  • Airfilters – useful page on home solutions for those with sensory processing issues and sensitivities
