All learners have individual needs - some have special needs
Meeting individual learning needs is still a major challenge in education. Many developments, including the use of information technology, continue to address this issue. For those with special educational needs arising from physical, sensory or learning disabilities, there are even more challenges.

NOTE: the METg has now been disbanded and superceded by CNM, the Centre for New Media. Our disability-related research is now carried out by the Accessibility in Education Media research group in IET.
