Feedback form is now closed.
School can be a difficult place for a student that is unable to read at the same level as their peers. While evidenced based reading instruction is critical for these students, they should not fall behind in other subjects because of their reading difficulties. This session will provide hands on technology tutorials to help students that struggle to read through the use of assistive technology. This session will provide ideas and solutions to improve outcomes and increase accessibility to the curriculum. The presenter will offer concrete suggestions on types of assistive technology available and how to successfully incorporate them into the classroom for struggling readers. The session will focus on these three main objectives: 1) Using technology to support reading and learning 2) Using technology to support note taking and 3) Using technology to support spelling and writing.
