Assistive technology (AT) is any device, software, or equipment that is used to maintain or improve the functional capabilities of a person with a disability, including a learning difference. Technologies include hardware, or physical technologies that are kept on-site at our AT Studio, and software, or technology available via a computer that can potentially be used from home. To learn more about why and how LDS uses AT, head to our AT webpage.
We have all experienced sitting at the back of lecture halls or classrooms, struggling to hear the instructor when they turn their backs to write on the whiteboard or when they walk to the far side of the classroom.
Juno is a classroom audio device that ensures everyone in our RISE AT Studio and beyond can hear the speaker at just the right volume. The microphone is worn by an instructor, which—along with voice commands—allows for hands-free, mobile usage. Used in conjunction with an innovatively designed speaker and Bluetooth capability, Juno fills the room with crisp, clear audio for students sitting anywhere in our instructional spaces or at home.
LDS uses Juno at its group classes and camps to ensure focus, engagement, and learning. With Juno, every student feels like they are in the front row.
We offer Juno as part of our AT Studio, a space dedicated to the collaborative use of leading-edge AT to help our students with learning differences. To learn more about how your child can benefit, email our AT Manager at AT@ldsociety.ca.
