LEC SNA Summer School - Freeware to Support Learning & literacy (venue U.L. Assistive Technology Lab) - Conor Hartigan (tutor)

LEC is presenting a one day seminar which will provide professional development in Freeware to support Literacy. This course will cover a range of free literacy support software and strategies available to all windows users. The strategies covered are comparable to other professional software, such as read & write and claroread, which are commonly recommended for pupils with specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

·         SNA’s who are supporting pupils with limited funding options

·         SNA’s who are required to support a wide range of learning/literacy difficulties

·         Those seeking to expand their knowledge of assistive technology to support students with disabilities

 

Course aims:

·         To understand the role of this type of assistive technology in helping pupils with specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia

·         Develop knowledge and awareness of the free software and accessibility features available in the windows operating system to support literacy and learning.

·         To be able to peer-support colleagues in the use of the technology and teach pupils how to use the software as the need arises

·         To be aware of the issues that can lead to the abandonment of assistive technology

 

Course Content
