This document contains some useful advice and guidance on making your home devices accessible for children who may require some additional support e.g. larger text, having the text read to them, changing the background colour of the screen. Please contact Mrs Elsmore if there are experiencing any other difficulties accessing learning on the devices as we may be able to help.
