Using Technology to Support Students with Dyslexia

 

by Louise Hanrahan

Welcome to this blog for the TLN CRT workshop on Using Technology to Support Students with Dyslexia.  My name is Louise Hanrahan, and I have a passion for teaching students with Dyslexia.

Students with Dyslexia can feel overwhelmed by the amount of reading, writing, spelling, and organisation required to be successful at school.  We are fortunate in this day and age to have hundreds of excellent tools available to support students with Dyslexia in the classroom.

In this webinar, I will share with you some of the great technology resources I use for my students with Dyslexia.  These resources are suitable for all students. 

I am hoping that we can all learn from each other…… as I said, there are hundreds of apps out there!  I haven’t tried them all.  Have you found any apps worth sharing?

What do you know about Speech to Text apps? How are you using them in your class?

 

How do you use assistive technology in your class?

I have found the following links very helpful:

The second link it to ‘A Parents Guide to Assistive Technology.’ What questions do you ask yourself when you are evaluating a product? 

 

I appreciate your interest in this topic.  I look forward to reading your contributions.
