Assistive Technology


For people with dyslexia, Assistive Technology (AT) provides tools that ease the demands of reading and writing.  Assistive technology helps dyslexics save time and overcome challenges, such as slow note-taking, reading agility and poor handwriting, allowing them to demonstrate their abilities in ways that were once unimaginable.

In addition, our Award-Winning Student Panel offers an interactive Assistive Technology 101 presentation that immerses participants in the tools that support students with dyslexia.

Each of these easy-to-use tools can make an enormous difference for dyslexic children and adults.
