CognAssist helps training providers to recognise and respond to neurodiversity by quickly and easily assessing learners for hidden learning needs. This will provide a robust report evidencing a specific learning need.
CognAssist also provides personalised ongoing support for the learner, tailored to address their individual barriers to learning.
How CognAssist works
- CognAssist works by quickly and easily identifying learners with a hidden additional learning need and assessing those needs.
- Learners then receive an assessment report which recommends tailored learning strategies to support their specific needs.
- Learners and assessors are supported through the adaptive teaching techniques with learning content.
- The whole process provides evidence, reporting and management information in real time to support SFA funding requirements via the Individualised Learner Record (ILR).
