  • Talking word processing programs can make writing tasks easier for students with learning disabilities.
  • Creative writing programs and apps can help stimulate children’s creativity and make them more successful at writing stories and assignments.
  • Word prediction programs are available and can offer students help with spelling, word finding, and auditory processing difficulties.
  • Good writing programs include features such as text-to-speech with male and female voices, the ability to enlarge text, different font choices, the use of color coding and highlighting, spell checkers and grammar and punctuation dictionaries.
