Accessible Coding

 

For students with complex challenges, learning to code can help develop skills that are essential for learning, daily life and work.

Coding isn’t just about designing robots and writing software -- "Learning to Code."

Coding is essentially about developing logical sequences of events that achieve a repeatable goal. It means breaking down tasks into their component parts and  requires lots of collaboration.
