Learning to read is a vital academic milestone for all students. But for many students with LDs, learning to read is the hardest task they face at school in the primary years. Avon Maitland District School Board's STAR (Students with Technology Achieving Results) team has been working to change teacher practices by encouraging the use of accessible text technology in classrooms. A move that helps level the playing field for students with LDs.
Watch the following video series to learn more about accessible texts, how they can benefit students with LDs who struggle to read, and how to use accessible texts in your classroom and in your school.
