Assistive Technologies to Support Struggling Readers and Writers (DACPD88)
This Unit explores the key role assistive technology can, and should, have in today's learning environments. A range of resources is described and evaluated including many which are available easily online. The course is practical in nature, seeking to equip participants with skills including the structuring of word documents to make reading more accessible and in the production of text to speech audio files. It is intended that participants will gain confidence and basic competence in using these practices, understand how they facilitate learning and be able to implement them in their setting.
