Educational technology for dyslexia

Teacher and blogger Claire Lotriet contributed this article on special education needs and edtech to TES magazine in February. We only discovered it this week but it’s a great case study in how technology can aid children with learning differences.

The article focuses on Thomas, one of Claire’s students with dyslexia, and the technological solutions they found together to help him with writing. Check out Claire’s blog for more of her articles on teaching.

Mainstream technologies for learning disabilities

DO-IT is an organization based at the University of Washington, Seattle that looks to empower people with disabilities through technology and education, according to the organization’s website. They have a range of resources available on assistive technology, but one that especially caught our eye was this online brochure.

The flyer addresses readily available technologies, some of them mainstream, that can be used by people with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, and dyscalculia. More details here.
