I am a special education teacher of mildly disabled students in a middle school setting. The vast majority of my students have language-based learning disabilities and difficulty spelling. There are some electronic spell checkers available for use in my classroom, but my students need to have a spell checker for their own use; one they can keep with them to use at home and in all mainstream academic classes. Most students are creative and have wonderful ideas, but get bogged down in putting their ideas into words on paper because of their difficulty spelling, sequencing letters, and editing their work. I am trying to find a generous sponsor who will purchase 20 electronic spell checkers to be given to 20 students who are in need of these devices. I would prefer that the simplest version be purchased, one that only helps in locating the correct spelling and homonym choices. This way, students whose IEP's allow the use of an electronic spell checker on state testing may use their own device; spell checkers with extra features are not allowed. Having this technology available to them at home as well as in every class would greatly improve their effort, writing fluency, editing skills, homework completion, and grades.
