Accessibility lies at the heart of Apple. Shaw Education Trust supports special needs schools as well as special need pupils at mainstream schools with astonishing results.

The use of iPads and their accessibility features has had a significant impact on students with special educational needs, particularly those with visual impairments and those working on phonetical knowledge.

The success of the iPads has led to a call for rethinking traditional models of schooling and being brave in utilizing technology to create better learning experiences for all students.
