Aventido Celebrates Classroom Inclusion with ‘Design Your Own AT Superhero’ Competition

by Leah Llano

In a bid to foster creativity and awareness surrounding assistive technology (AT), Aventido, a leading advocate for accessibility and inclusion solutions, recently hosted a nationwide competition inviting primary school children to design their own AT superhero. The response was overwhelming, with entries pouring in from schools across the country, showcasing the talent and imagination of young minds.

Eliza, a year six from St Thomas Moore Catholic Primary School in Cheltenham, emerged as the winner, impressing judges with her insightful understanding of the connection between AT and mental well-being.

Aventido’s COO Matt Dean recently visited St Thomas Moore Catholic Primary School to present Eliza with the prize she had won for her school; a bundle of essential AT for the classroom. This bundle includes literacy support software ReadSpeaker TextAid, a ScanMarker Pro reading pen, noise-reducing earplugs from dBud, access to the British Sign Language learning app Bright BSL, and dictation software Nuance Dragon. The award aims to empower Eliza’s school with resources that facilitate inclusive learning environments for all students.

Aventido is committed to breaking down barriers within classrooms and workplaces. They believe that embracing neurodiversity should be celebrated and that equal opportunities in education and employment are fundamental rights for all individuals.

“Eliza’s exceptional entry underscores the importance of understanding the profound impact AT can have on mental health and overall inclusivity,” said Matt Dean, COO at Aventido. “We are dedicated to championing accessibility solutions that empower individuals like Eliza to thrive academically and later on in life, professionally.”

Aventido remains steadfast in their mission to advocate for accessibility and inclusion, driving positive change in education and beyond. With initiatives like the ‘Design Your Own AT Superhero’ competition, they aim to inspire innovation and foster a culture of inclusivity for generations to come.
