Going to school online can be difficult for students with dyslexia. At the same time, it can be an opportunity for them to gain academic independence by using assistive technology. In this webinar, Jamie Martin will first share his AT First Aid Kit, which can be used to get kids started with practical technology tools for reading and writing. It includes the built-in accessibility features of most devices, Bookshare, OCR apps, and a list of AT tools that are available for free while schools are engaged in distance learning. Jamie will then answer questions that viewers have about how assistive technology can support students with dyslexia while they learn from home.
Jamie Martin is an assistive technology specialist at New England Assistive Technology (NEAT) in Hartford, CT. He specializes in assistive technology for dyslexia and other learning disabilities. He works with school districts throughout Connecticut, providing evaluations, consultations, trainings, and professional development. In addition, he is a consultant for Understood.org, a leading website for people who learn and think differently.
