Brian Kerslake, Managing Director Brian read Ergonomics & Cybernetics at Loughborough University and programmed for Lyons Bakery then London's Royal College of Art, where he got involved in research into the computer-aided design of school buildings. A PGCE teacher-training course followed, BBC micros arrived in schools, and he got fed up with giving away software he'd written for his class.

"We sort of grew into producing software for Special Educational Needs," says Topologika's managing director Brian Kerslake. "Unlike many publishers who jumped on the eLC bandwagon to produce software that's targeted at one key stage or age range - with the same pack tweaked for others - we've always aimed to produce value-for-money titles that cover a wide age and ability range."

Examples of this are their popular Scally's World series - titles now cover verbs, nouns, problems, numbers and sums - that can be set up via to easy to use options to work across the whole primary range.
"And some titles," said Brian, "even work across phases. Examples are textThing Plus which takes text that teachers load and converts it into 10 different English exercises at difficulty levels controlled by the teacher. Just released is a follow up to that called textThing MFL which turns text in any 'western' language into the same 10 exercises. "This one pack," says Brian, "works in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Danish plus, of course, Welsh, Gaelic and Cornish. It talks in those for which speech engines exist."
With foreign languages supposedly being taught in most primaries, this switch or mouse operated pack can work a treat with older SEN children who are interested in exploring a written foreign language.
Also new at the show is Words & Music, described by Brian as Topologika's answer to software like Sibelius and Compose World and a great follow-up to their best-selling Music Box 2.
