@iplante @EHSSouthport Text Synched With Audiobooks Improves Reading

For millions of students with learning disabilities like dyslexia, reading is often greatly improved when they can hear and see the printed word at the same time.

Specialists report that listening to audiobooks while following the printed text allows many of these readers to take in information and enjoy learning without struggling over each word.

Lou Salza's curator insight, February 2, 2014 3:25 PM

I recently purchased an iPad Mini and VoiceDream; an app that opens any digitized text in my dropbox or Google Drive and reads it aloud while simultaneously moving a curser highlightinh the text being read. This software is robust, nimble and mobile!--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"....Paul B. Yellin, M.D., founder of The Yellin Center for Mind, Brain, and Education, describes the process: “Many children understand language that they hear at a higher level than language they read on their own.Audiobooks allow children to access information at this higher level. And very often, reading skills are best improved if the listener follows along with the written text.”

Dr. Yellin points to new formats like VOICEtext from Learning Ally, which highlights each sentence on-screen as a human narrator reads it, making it easier for readers to follow along.

“Having the ability to actually see a word highlighted while hearing it read allows a child to access content by reinforcing the linkage between ‘how a word looks’ with ‘how a word sounds’ and supports the development of independent reading skills,” he says.

Whitney D. Hall, Ph.D., a psychologist specializing in cognitive assessment, agrees, saying, “The benefit of adding on-screen text that is highlighted in synch with the narration is that this more closely simulates the act of reading. Following along while hearing the material narrated allows a child to practice using their reading skills.”

How Text Synched with Audio Improves Reading

• Improves skills for decoding each sound in a word

• Enforces letter-sound associations

• Improves sight word recognition

• Enhances vocabulary

• Increases comprehension...."

Legislation is necessary but not sufficient. Enforcement, funding and execution at the school and classroom level are often deal-breakers. --Lou

Excerpt:

"....The first bill would require that at least 20 hours of the 100 hours of professional development that teachers are required to complete every five years be instruction in the screening, intervention, help, and use of technology for students with reading disabilities, including dyslexia.

The second bill would incorporate the International Dyslexia Association’s definition of dyslexia into the state’s special education regulations. No uniform definition is in use by districts statewide, something advocates say can keep students from getting the help they need.

The resolution urges the state Board of Education to develop an endorsement to the instruction certificate for teachers of students with reading disabilities, create eligibility and training requirements for the endorsement, and work with colleges to develop instructional programs for candidates for the endorsement...."
