2017 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

F4 - Audio-Assisted Reading as Remediation: Beyond Assistive Technology

Nov 10, 2017 8:30am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 9:30am

Standard: $20.00


Audio-assisted reading as an accommodation provides practical benefits for struggling readers in a classroom, but evidence suggests it might also remediate a students own independent silent reading automaticity. This presentation seeks to explain why, how to identify who will benefit from such a program, and some of the pragmatics for implementation: a procedure and rubric for identifying candidates, practical steps toward training the students in its use, and specific advice on how to successfully move students toward independent use of these very valuable tools.

Learning Outcomes:

  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Assess the critical issues of adolescent literacy including the nature of the problem, differentiated language needs of students and effective instructional solutions (principles and practices).
  • TECHNOLOGY: Access potential applications of language based technology for direct instruction and/or accommodation for students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
