During Hira’s time at College she has been supported by the Education, Care and Integrated Therapy teams to make outstanding progress. Employability sessions have allowed Hira to explore avenues of employment and have assisted in developing self-advocacy skills. She is now confident when speaking to individuals and groups. Hira can also navigate around College using mapping and trailing techniques and she has been trained to use a Braille Note Touch device which Hira says helps her feel more involved in her own education."
