Literacy & Technology Hands On (Latch-On) is two-year literacy programme for adults with intellectual disability. Latch-On was initiated and developed at the school of education at the University of Queensland and has a strong foundation in educational research and practice. The programme provides opportunities for adults with Down syndrome to commence and continue their literacy development.
Latch-On is a four module literacy programme focusing on topics such as the self, the community, the wider world and the world of work. The programme is taught twice weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 09.30 - 15.00. We currently have twelve students on the course.
