T10 - Technol-OGy: EdTech to Enhance Structured Literacy Instruction

Oct 25, 2018 11:15am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 12:15pm

Standard: $20.00


Historically, structured literacy approaches have been the most effective for remediating language difficulties. Educational technology can make this type of instruction a multisensory process that is engaging and explicit while maintaining individualization and diagnostic-prescriptive aspects that are its hallmarks. An Orton-Gillingham fellow and a director of technology share their collaboration to include technology as an instructive and assistive tool following the traditional Orton-Gillingham approach in a small classroom setting.

Learning Objective:

  • TECHNOLOGY: Access potential applications of language-based technology for direct instruction and/or accommodation for students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.

Disclosure: Sharon Plante and Theresa Collins have no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose.

I always love to hear about the different technologies that can be used for the dyslexic student. Great presentation. Would have liked to have seen more actual footage of how the technology works, but maybe time just would not allow for that.
