Assistive Technology


For people with dyslexia, Assistive Technology (AT) provides tools that ease the demands of reading and writing. Assistive technology helps students with dyslexia save time and overcome challenges, such as slow note-taking, reading agility and poor handwriting, allowing them to demonstrate their abilities in ways that were once unimaginable. With assistive technology (AT) developing at such a rapid pace, it is hard to keep up. The below links will help you stay “in the know”.

In this site you’ll find the latest information about a range of technological tools—from voice recognition programs that let users dictate ideas and watch them appear on their computer screens to recording devices that take the stress out of note-taking. Each of these easy-to-use tools can make an enormous difference for dyslexic children and adults.
