Presented by Jamie Martin, Educator, Assistive Technology Consultant & Trainer***Assistive Technology (AT) has become an essential element in the education of students with dyslexia. AT helps teachers implement Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and ensure that learning materials can be accessed by all of their students, including those with language-based learning differences. This webinar will review the three principles of UDL and how dyslexia-specific AT fits into a universally designed classroom. It will also explore the main categories of AT that dyslexic students can use to reach academic success, including text-to-speech, audiobooks, dictation, word prediction, and electronic graphic organizers. Finally, the webinar will turn to common myths about assistive technology and why AT should be viewed as a legitimate learning tool.
