My Students

I serve young children through small group reading interventions at a charter school in Fort Worth. The students in which I serve are bright, young, energetic, and hard working. My students have many gifts and talents. Some obtain very high math and science skills and others are incredibly artistic. Although my students bring unique personalities and talents to my classroom, each of them shares one commonality.

My students struggle with reading, writing, and spelling due to a learning difference called "dyslexia." The daily academic challenges impact my students' confidence, motivation, and self-esteem regarding learning.

I have found technology devices such as iPads provide opportunities to build reading, writing, and spelling skills through interactive, engaging activities to help ensure successful learners.

My Project

It takes a great amount of effort for dyslexic students to learn to read; therefore, these students often give up and lose interest quickly in the process. Many of these students have unique gifts and talents hidden within that can go unnoticed due to the effects of low reading performance. Research provides strong evidence that virtually all dyslexic students can learn to read through explicit, hands-on, multi-sensory approaches if interventions begin before the age of eight. Too often students go unidentified until the gaps become too wide to close.

Technology is a powerful tool that engages, motivates, and drives student learning.

iPads provide interactive, hands-on activities to struggling readers in order to reach every child's style, interest, and needs while learning to read. What better way to help a child's academic success than providing the gift of reading through technology devices?
