Dyslexia Can't Stop Them!

My students need iPads to read their tests to them!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

All kids can learn! I have a wonderful group of students that are eager to learn. Over 10 of my students are severely dyslexic and several grade levels behind their peers. They are in an intense phonics program daily in addition to classroom supports and accommodations. My students this year are in grades 4 and 5. I'm so excited to work with them and see their growth.

Dyslexic students can be successful with intense intervention and accommodations to level the playing field while they close the gap.

My Project

I need 2 iPads for my classroom to help with test taking and videoing. Students use apps to have their reading passages read to them on tests. We have Chromebooks in our school and unfortunately Google-Read and Write is not compatible with our reading program.

Dyslexic students want to be successful.

They want to learn. I have found that I can record the passages (in my own voice) and students can listen and re-listen to the reading passages. This makes them successful on their tests independently. They are making huge gains with daily specific dyslexia reading instruction but there have to be accommodations while the gap is still so large. Additionally, students will use the iPads to record their reading so they can see their growth and feel the pride that comes with success.
