Reading comprehension is challenging for students with dyslexia. Difficulties with decoding, vocabulary, and reading fluency contribute to an imperfect understanding of the written word. Assistive technology makes reading easier. Text-to-speech, electronic graphic organizers, flashcard apps, and virtual note-taking tools contribute to improved comprehension. This session explores a selection of software, apps, and Chrome tools that can be utilized in the active reading process. The sample reading selections are taken from texts about The Beatles.
