Writing Apps – Supports for Students with LD 

Writing Apps – Supports for Students with LD  | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Writing is considered one of the most difficult literacy tasks. Many students with learning disabilities struggle with the process of writing as well as the mechanical componets of the writing task. Technology can provide support to the mechanical demands of the writing process and is often a welcome tool to students. When asked about AT supports for writing there are many, however some of the standard AT tools of mechanical writing are voice recognition, use of text to speech, word prediction and adaptive or customized writing environments. Although there are others (especially those with text to speech) here are some apps that show good reviews and provide basic features of the standard AT tools for writing. At the present, phonetic word prediction does not appear to be present in writing apps (may be found in more advanced text-based AAC apps such as Predictably).

iOS 5 features a new resource called Assistive Touch. It essentially streamlines more than 20 of the most-used processes for the device.It can help you do just about anything from having a custom lock screen to creating custom gestures that help you send mail.

I suggest you check it out even if you may not think you’d benefit as it could actually help just about anyone looking to customize their experience a bit.
