Victoria Education Centre is a special school in Poole, Dorset, offering specialised, high quality education, therapy and care for young people aged 3-19. In addition, the Centre now offers a residential transition service for 18-25 year olds.
The students who attend Victoria have physical disabilities or complex medical/neurological conditions and many have additional needs including communication difficulties, learning difficulties and sensory impairments.

Thesis title: The Development of Assistive Technology to Reveal Knowledge of Physical World Concepts in Young People Who Have Profound Motor Impairments
Mark works as an Assistive Technologist in special education and is especially interested in providing opportunities for interaction with the physical world for the pupils with whom he works. He has a particular interest in eye tracking technology and used this during his research at VEC to provide control of a robotic arm. Mark considered it important to provide a physical component to the interactions. This led to the creation of a hand-based haptic feedback device which sends a sensation to the wearer’s hand whenever the robotic arm grips an object.
