Severe intellectual disabilities

Some people have SEVERE intellectual disabilities. Even as adults they will need a lot of help and support with daily living. They will often have limited or eccentric communication and will have no literacy or numeric skills.

The video below shows people with severe intellectual disabilities using the web. Before that, there is a link to a PDF summarising key barriers to web access for this group, techniques you can use to overcome these barriers, examples of good sites for this audience, and some useful links. The same PDF is used for people with severe and profound learning disabilities.
