Description

What does the research say about technologies that truly support the struggling reader, comprehender, speller, and writer? Based on the research, into which tools should we invest our time, talent, and resources? While there is not a lot of research about individual products, there is research that points out the best technology to harness to facilitate positive student outcomes. Come learn about what to look for when choosing a tool, and see some examples of what to use and what not to use with students with dyslexia.
