Dyslexia and Dysgraphia were in focus even before Remote & Hybrid Learning. But, now more than ever, educators, parents & districts are looking for effective ways to help students access and complete assignments independently—wherever they learn.
Students with dyslexia or dysgraphia, often have difficulties with:
Decoding and comprehension
Spelling & Grammar
Written expression and writing speed (thinking faster than they can write)
Independence (they rely on adults for reading and writing tasks)
Writing math symbols; aligning numbers and word problems
Phonics and Phonemic Awareness
Finishing research, reading, and writing assignments on time
You’re going to need the BEST combination of technology and measurement tools to help your students rise above these challenges, recover from the COVID slide, and build confidence to work independently.
