Integrating iPads Into Your classroom: For learning Support & Special Education (Workshop Handout) | Spectronics Online | Special Education | Scoop.it

"For students with diverse learning needs including students with special education needs, students with learning and literacy difficulties and students for whom English is not their first language technology can play a key role in removing barriers, differentiating instruction and providing tools to accommodate their learning needs and access to the school curriculum. During this workshop we explored the range of options using an iPad to assist teachers to optimize and differentiate student learning, and to support student engagement."

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons

Teaching Children With Dyslexia - Accommodations - Reading Horizons | Special Education | Scoop.it

"As a dyslexic specialist and someone who knows a great deal about teaching children with dyslexia, I see on a daily basis the struggles these students face in the mainstream classroom. What can be written in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) varies from state to state, and, often, dyslexia is not even addressed. Sometimes, if you approach it as a reading disability or a processing disorder, the schools may be more willing to work with you. You have the right as parents to discuss with your children's teachers certain accommodations that will help your children perform better and allow them to measure a more-accurate assessment of their knowledge and intelligence. You may take this list in to your children's schools and/or teachers and discuss with them what they would be willing to do to help your children."

“Touch and Write Phonics” is a fun way for children to practice vowels, blends, digraphs and trigraphs – as they write with shaving cream, ketchup and more!

“Touch and Write Phonics” allows parents and teachers to create individualized practice lists, and it allows parents and teachers to track children’s progress!

▫▫ How to Play ▫▫
Children choose a phonics area to practice by tapping the “Vowels,” “Blends” or “Digraphs” button. Children will have the opportunity to watch animations that teach about short vowels, long vowels, blends and digraphs or to practice writing words with short vowels, long vowels (with special attention to “silent e”), starting and ending blends, digraphs and trigraphs.
