Ra's curator insight, March 31, 1:14 PM

Looking from a SENCO perspective as a resource that can be used by teachers to get them thinking about using apps for those students with high learning needs. Student voice and autonomy could be increased by having them explore the apps indicated as being useful and give feedback on how and why they think the app would fit with their learning needs.

Great resources!

How common are spelling difficulties?Spelling is difficult for many people, but there is much less research on spelling than there is on reading to tell us just how many people spell poorly or believe they spell poorly.

This site developed by Moms of Dyslexics provides a set of apps that can support dyslexics and struggling readers. As a Mom of an adult dyslexic, I want to thank these Moms who have created this site for families that have a child with dyslexia.

 

Here are the apps they have reviewed on this site:

> Sound Literacy-$24.99 Sound Literacy can be used in conjunction with any curriculum that emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonological processing, systematic phonetic instruction, or word building with ‘meaningful word parts’.

 

> Dyslexia Quest- $1.99: The Yeti Master will take your child on an adventure while testing working memory, processing speed, visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing skills.

 

> Montessori Crosswords-$2.99: Highly rated and based on Montessori learning methods, this app will aid in the development of reading and spelling skills through phonemic awareness.

 

> Spell Trekking-Free:  Your child will learn to spell while trekking through space on the S.S. Spell Trek.

 

> Letter Quiz-Free and Full Version-$1.99: Consists of four games to help your child learn letter recognition and writing practice.

 

> Dyslexic Like Me-$1.99:  The purpose of Dyslexic Like Me is to teach the child what dyslexia is and about successful people who also have dyslexia.

 

> See Read Say-$1.99:  The visual nature of a dyslexic can make learning sight words difficult.

 

> Phonics Genius-Free:  Phonetic awareness is essential to reading and this app takes it to a new level.  The app contains thousands of words grouped into 225 phonic categories.

Harnessing the inbuilt accessibility in mobile devices such as the iPad with well designed apps is very empowering.

Reading is the area in which students with dyslexia struggle the most. Luckily, there are mobile apps that can help with functions like text-to-speech and translation.

Lo que hubiera dado yo por una de estas apps cuando era niño; lástima que en ese entonces sólo daban coscorrones en estos casos
