Accessible Media and Assistive Technology

With a variety of digital learning materials and environments, studying can become easier and more accessible. Yet there are still numerous obstacles that complicate the use of assistive technology and finding the individually appropriate assistive technologies and work methods can be an arduous task. For students with impairments, DoBuS offers support and advice on how to study accessibly and with the appropriate assistive technologies and work techniques.


At DoBuS, we support students in many different settings. The services we provide:
