These apps are FABULOUS technology tools for students with learning disabilities or students who need a little extra help! Features like looking of correct spelling and reading text aloud can help students overcome their reading impairments!

This is still the best app I recommend often for text to speech for Bookshare books, scanned documents/ handouts/ worksheets, newspapers and articles from the web, and more. Excellent features for assistance with reading!

Voice Dream Reader version 2.8 is out! It's a big release with many new features like Pronunciation Dictionary and Configurable Navigation which are more advanced than any text-to-speech reader in the market.

Excellent For students and individuals who need the tactile feedback and guidance, and/ or those who have difficulty with resting their hands on the ipad screen.

John A. Morris's curator insight, November 3, 2013 10:38 AM

Now Low Vision patients can have an additional communication tool  that doesn't require additional hardware.  Not bad for the rest of us too - one more thing we don't have to carry - keyboards.

Heather Peretz's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:45 PM

Great for individuals that need the tactile input of a keyboard when typing.

While this topic focuses on literacy, I believe many issues of illiteracy center on this very idea of executive functioning and metacognitive abilities.

Carol Leynse Harpold's curator insight, January 29, 2014 8:12 PM

Katherine McCloskey scooped this resource of apps for organization. My favorities on this list include the 30/30, Toodledo apps. I also would include apps like Notability, Awesome Note and Alarmed!

More for your OT mTool Kit!
