Delegates from Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Romania, Italy, Thailand and China were introduced to the innovative ‘Multimedia Advocacy’ approach to the education of learners with intellectual disabilities.

Dr Prapassara Thanosawan fro the SWU University in Bangkok, Thailand commented that the Seminar’s information about innovative applications of Technology in Special Education shared by RIX Centre Researchers “…has been very stimulating academically. As a Linguistics scholar I have found the ideas about Easy to Read use of language and the use of accessible media tools particularly interesting.” she said.
