Decoding Dyslexia DC Monthly Meeting - Shared screen with speaker view
Are these free?
Does it have to be in print or can it be handwritten?
Can you share the video on how to change the settings on Chromevox Speak selection? My daughter HATES the voice and it is a bit fast for her to keep up.
Can you share a "day in the life" video of students using AT in school? I'm not sure what my kid is using.
Sometimes there is push back for wanting to use assistive technology. What is a good response to that push back?
How do you balance using AT while still coaxing a kid into practicing handwriting and writing? (especially elementary school age)
Are there any famous dyslexic athletes, celebrities, authors who've done demos for tools?
Is there an app on learning to type that you recommend?
For accommodations, how much extra time should be allocated to using proofreading tools or dyslexia keyboard?
Seems like laptops are OUT, should I get a Chrome book or an iPad or both?? + and - of each. THanks
Any advice for managing email content and inboxes? Middle schooler has to do everything by email. Checking email for things like date changes or assignments?
is there software that uses a persons own voice from speech to text to read backs text in text to speech?
Are there better text to speech apps for some of the math apps that the kids are using? For example - if a child is using Khan Academy and there are multiple choices to read.
My student is in HS and preparing to go to college.His dilemma is research. How do you research an extensive volume of material when you can’t skim and scan? what tech exists to help with this?
What level of instruction should a child receive on how to use these tools? Who typically delivers that instruction? Our IEP says something like "use graphic organizer"
Ben Foss’ project was HeadStrong, great resources
“The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan” Ben Foss - great book!
When kids push back it can be out of embarrassment. When other kids aren't using similar tools, it can be stigmatizing.
For handwriting, give kids everyday chores like lists to write for you. Or make fun things like comics and doodles. I keep scratch paper and pencils all over the house.
Audible??? My son has access through the district. Great resource!
Thank you so much!
