|The structure of the D.H.E.A. Special Needs Information Service:
The D.H.E.A. Special Needs Information Service has a massive
core of information which has been gathered together in an easily accessed
of Resources. The aphabetical Library Indexes bring together
information about available Resources, Suppliers, Conditions and Organisations.
The many ways in which special needs can be met are covered by Focus
articles on special needs topics with hundreds of information pages all
linked to the Library Indexes.
We will keep you up to date with developments in special needs through
our News Pages. The Events Diary gives you details
of conferences, exhibitions, courses and meetings about special needs.
From time to time we will be looking more closely at one topic in a series
of Focus articles.
Finding your way round the D.H.E.A. Special Needs Information Service:
As you are reading articles you will be able to select highlighted references
which take you to more information on that topic. Selecting the 'back'
icon will return you to the original page. For example clicking on
the word "Apple Macintosh" will take you to information on produccts and
devices for Apple Macintosh.
You can also return to the D.H.E.A. Information
Service Online 'front page' by clicking on "Special
Needs Home Page" on the right hand side where ever you are in our
site. We have tried to make navigating the D.H.E.A. Special Needs
Information Service as easy as possible but if you are lost you can
always get back to the home page.
We have a section which explains the present format of the DfEE's Code
of Practice. In the IT section you can find out about software and
specialist technology, such as electronic communication aids, that will
support learners with particular special needs.
