iPads for Learning Differences: Reading & Comprehension

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Print can be a barrier to learning for students with dyslexia, or with certain language or visual processing difficulties.  Participants in this hands-on, beginner-level session will learn how to address these challenges with narrated audiobooks and electronic text (e-text) for use with text-to-speech software.  They will also learn how to access audiobooks and e-text from two primary sources of print alternatives for academic materials, Learning Ally and Bookshare, as well as lesser-known sources.

Prior to the session, participants will need to have the free iBooks app (included with every newer iPad) and to purchase and install Voice Dream Reader.

*This is one of a four-session series that will cover a wide range of iPad features, apps, and associated strategies to assist students who learn differently.  Attend only one session or the entire track. We strongly recommend that participants download and install certain apps in advance (most are free) and have iPads running iOS 8.x or 9.x.
