The Latch-On program (hereinafter referred to as “Latch-On”) (literacy and technology hands-on) is an innovative literacy program that changes the lives of young adults with intellectual disabilities. The program provides opportunities for these young adults to continue their literacy development in a post-secondary school environment, using computer technology to enhance literacy, self-confidence, independence and work placement opportunities.
Latch-on was developed out of extensive research conducted by the University of Queensland’s School of Education. The program is made available through Uniquest Pty Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Uniquest”), which is the main commercialisation company of the University of Queensland (UQ).
