Overview:

This webinar will focus on the basics of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how assistive technology (AT) helps teachers create inclusive classrooms that allow all of their students, including those with dyslexia, to reach academic success. The discussion will address the three principles of UDL and how assistive technology follows those principles. Next, there will be a discussion about the main categories of AT that dyslexic students can use to reach their potentials, including text-to-speech, dictation, word prediction, study skills, and graphic organizers. Finally, the webinar will turn to common myths about dyslexia and assistive technology and why AT should be viewed as a legitimate learning tool.
