​The iPads for success project at Mackay District Special School is growing in leaps and bounds. We would like to thank the many donors in the local community who have helped make this project sustainable across our school with their very generous donations which have allowed our fleet of iPads to increase to 29 to date. Many of our students, 30 to date, are also utilising their own personal iPads at school with various applications and for a range of purposes from voice output communication aids (VOCAs) to scheduling tools and curriculum acces tools. The touch technology and available applications offer strategies that promote access for students with a disability.
