The Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2017

Inclusive Technology wins The Queen's Award for Innovation!

We are delighted to announce that Inclusive Technology, provider of learning technologies supporting children with special educational needs, has received the most prestigious business award in the UK for a second consecutive year - The Queen's Awards for Enterprise: Innovation 2017.

Last year Inclusive won the Queen's Award for International Trade as HelpKidzLearn spearheaded the company's online special education services in the United States. This year ChooseIt! Maker 3, which allows teachers or parents to create personalised choice-making activities for a child, has scooped the Award for Innovation.

Create personalised activities that can be published as an App.

Activities created using ChooseIt! Maker 3 can be used on classroom computers or, crucially, published as an App and used anywhere offline - at home or in the family car, for instance. To date 97,000 activities have been created in schools around the world. Each can be shared freely with classmates or even with other schools here or overseas.

To create a personalised activity teachers can add images, take photos, record sounds, draw or paint. In addition, there is a built-in searchable media library with 30,000 pictures and symbols allowing the creation of national or core standard curriculum activities in minutes.

Every ChooseIt! Maker 3 activity automatically records each learner's progression. Results can be saved and shared with parents or teachers.

Inclusive's Chairman, Martin Littler, said:

"I'm delighted that the Queen's Awards are highlighting accessible software. Children with complex learning difficulties and disabilities deserve software that they can access easily and software their classmates can enjoy too.

"I'm particularly pleased that ChooseIt! Maker 3 has been honoured in this way. ChooseIt! Maker 3 enables kids to make choices - that's fundamental to independence, communication, learning - everything."
