Event description

Description

In recent years, there has been a rapid development of assistive technology (AT) that allows students with dyslexia to experience new educational heights and reach their academic potentials. The presentation will first explore the concept of the Universal Design for Learning(UDL) and how AT can help teachers create UDL classrooms. Next, it examines the main categories of UDL that are helpful to students with dyslexia, including text to speech, dictation, word prediction, and electronic graphic organizers. Finally, there is a discussion of common myths that are associated with AT for dyslexia and what can be done to dispel those myths. This overview presentation helps teachers and families level the playing field for kids who have difficulty reading and writing.

This virtual webinar will be facilitated by Jamie Martin who is an Assistive Technology Specialist at the New England Technology Center(NEAT) in Hartford, CT. He specializes in finding AT solutions for students and adults with dyslexia and other learning and attention issues. He regularly gives educational presentations, including ATIA(Assistive Technology Industry Association) and IDA(International Dyslexia Association). He is a consultant for the learning website, Understood.org.
