Siobhan Mac Garry co-ordinates the Service for Students with Learning Difference under whose remit the SOAR Enabling Transitions IT Tralee work stream operates. The Enabling Transitions project was conceived to address a gap long noted by the Service, notably that students with learning difference, in particular students from disadvantaged backgrounds, were presenting to the Institute with very limited or no prior exposure to how technology could support their literacy and learning . Siobhan devised the project plan to deal with this gap via a Train the Trainer approach.
