Reading With Technology For Special Ed Students

My students need 5 e-readers for the benefit of adjusting the font size, turning pages,look up vocabulary, easy to hold due to fine motor skill issues.Technology benefit

My Students

I teach middle school 6th, 7th and 8th grade students with a wide range of disabilities including, fine/gross motor skills, Autism, ADHD, Emotionally disturbed, speech and language disabilities, auditory processing and orthopedic disabilities. Learning levels vary between 2nd - 6th grade in reading

My students are learning to live in the world of middle school, in addition to working hard to over come their learning disabilities and struggles academically.

They attend a wonderful middle school in Northern California that employs wonderful teachers who are willing and open to ALL types of learners.

My Project

Guided Reading Groups for struggling readers, changing the font size of the text and the number of words on the e-reader screen can help students customize the text to their preferences that can be especially helpful for struggling readers. Using the built-in dictionary function of some e-readers may help students quickly define words they don't know and provide pronunciation information that can help them sound out unfamiliar words. 3. Having students record their thoughts or respond to specific questions with the "notes" feature of some e-readers provides individualized insight to their comprehension of the text for teachers. 4. The text-to-speech feature of some e-readers could provide the scaffolding for struggling readers to better understand a text by reading aloud the words that cause them the most difficulty. 5. Most e-readers can convert books into audio files quickly for students who struggle with reading, a process that previously was more cumbersome and time-consume

For children with physical and learning disabilities, technology can give access to learning opportunities previously closed to them.

Most students with disabilities can and do benefit from technology in the classroom. Incorporating technology increases students'™ motivation to learn and personalizes lessons to a student individual needs. Even the students with the most severe and profound disabilities can use passive technology to join a classroom of typical students.
