This impacts success in all content areas. Slide 11: Any Content Area- printed, electronic, or on the Web Study Skills - highlighting, text circle tools, voice notes, outlines, study guides, word lists Improves reading comprehension and retention Decoding- reads the words aloud in clear, humanlike, speech, while a patented dual highlighting feature adds visual reinforcement Slide 12: Writing and Self-Editing Tools – as students type, the software speaks each letter or word Independent Test Taking –reads questions and answers aloud, allows students to type answers onto the image of a scanned test Webinars for implementation On-site Training Math : Math Because Math builds on prior knowledge, it is essential that students have a firm foundation in the basics.

If I did this assignment again, I might focus in on one software/device and go into greater detail rather than covering a broad spectrum of tools. This information would be useful in a classroom curriculum by making the content accessible to students with a variety of learning needs. Students with disabilities, ELL and struggling learners can all benefit from assistive technology. You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
