On Thursday 30th June 2016, Managing Director Lawrence Howard and Theresa Pruvost Head of Operations attended the 15th annual conference of the Association of Dyslexic Specialists in Higher Education (aDShe), at Aston University in Birmingham.

Lawrence Howard said, “It was a great opportunity to discuss the BEACONING Project, how it will be using gamification to help improve the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and enable students to apply what they are learning.

“Additionally there was a lot of interest from the members of aDShe to have an involvement in the pilots of BEACONING where Hands Free will have integrated many assistive technologies into the BEACONING platform to make it as accessible as possible to the widest range of disabled learners.”
