Despite having so many more laptops, chromebooks and iPads in the hands of learners there is still a lack of information and training being provided to teachers on how to make the most of these devices to support dyslexic learners.

  • Do you know what built in accessibility features can revolutionise the learning experience of someone with literacy difficulties?
  • Do you know what software, apps, browser tools can allow dyslexic learners to work more independently thus giving them a much needed confidence boost?

We have an end of term opportunity for you to pick up some tips and ideas.  Our very popular ASL and Technology conference is on 16th June and it costs £5 to sign up. This is the Professional Learning bargain of the year!  It’s a virtual event which means you can hopefully fit in some workshops (35 minutes long) around your working day and you then have the chance at a later time to watch other workshops which have been recorded.

Here are the recommended workshops which will focus on Technology to support dyslexic learners:

  • 9:00am - MS Word to support literacy difficulties: Craig Mill, CALL Scotland
  • 9:45am - Read smarter with Scholarcy: Daniel Pooley, Assistive Solutions
  • 9:45am - Providing students with consistent literacy and STEM support:  Andrew Campbell, TextHelp
  • 10:30am - Learning without textbooks:  Rossie Stone, Dekko Comics
  • 11:15am - Individualised resources for struggling readers:  ReadingWise, Caroline Shepherd
  • 1200 noon - iPads for ASN pupils in a Primary Classroom:  Blair Minchin, Victoria Primary school
  • 2:15pm - Assisting communication and writing for all using Clicker 8:  Carolyn Clark, Crick software
  • 2:15pm - How to use a Reader Pen for pupils with literacy difficulties: Jim Bowen & Katie Hunter, Scanning Pens
  • 3:00pm - Technology for Digital Exams:  Paul Nisbet, CALL Scotland

Sign up today to the conference for access to one or ALL these excellent workshops to support your dyslexic learners. And have a look at the full list of conference workshops which includes technology to support learners with autism, communication, visual or physical impairment and complex learning needs.
