7 Reading Readiness Apps for Special Needs Students | Jayne Clare Blog | Edutopia.org

7 Reading Readiness Apps for Special Needs Students | Jayne Clare Blog | Edutopia.org | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

What is reading readiness? The dictionary defines it as the point when a child transforms from being a non-reader to being a reader. But this definition leaves out the concept that reading readiness may actually begin in the womb. Watch Annie Murphy Paul's TED Talk to learn more about what is called fetal origins.

In another vein, as Maryanne Wolf writes in Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain, "We were never born to read." Getting ready to read takes years of informal exposure to language and print in a myriad of ways. This stage is called early literacy.


Talking and interacting with children about daily literacy-based activities that interest them in their everyday lives best accomplishes acquiring these skills.


Storytelling, print and book awareness, and playing with words (rhyming, clapping, stomping out syllables, rolling and bouncing a ball) are all great ways to get started at an early age.


But even when the stage has been set with all the right components, the special-education child usually grapples with reading and writing.

How can we use tech to support the special-needs population?

Fiction v nonfiction – English literature's made-up divide

Fiction v nonfiction – English literature's made-up divide | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it
Some cultures do not distinguish between fiction and nonfiction – and instead talk of ‘stories’. Is that a barrier to English-language writers and publishers? Or should they just learn to enjoy telling tales?

Patrick Provencher's insight:
I love how these librarians "connected the dots" and put together a program that not only provided literacy benefits for these young children, but helped their parents access services that made their lives/health better. THIS is what public libraries are all about! I would love to see more school-public library partnerships to create a continuum of services for all families in our communities.
