ICT courses for Persons with an Intellectual Impairment


Back in May/June 2003 FITA, in collaboration with the Maltese College for Art Science and Technology (MCAST), set up a pilot project consisting of a basic course in Computer Office Skills for persons with an intellectual disability. It was a success and the knowledge gained from this project were put to good use in subsequent courses. More courses are now being held on a regular basis in collaboration with supporting organisations.
