    • 3. What is an Assistive Technology Tool
      Defined by Kristin Stanberry and Dr. Marshal Raskind (2006), “Assistive technology for kids with LD is defined as any device, piece of equipment, or system that helps bypass, work around, or compensate for an individual’s specific learning deficits”
      Assistive Technology Tools allow children with learning disabilities to use their strengths to work around their disabilities (Stanberry & Raskind, 2006)
    • 4. Important Ideas to Consider about Assistve Technology Tools
      Assistive technology by itself does not always provide positive learning supports for students
      While commonly used to support students with disabilities, assistive technologies create extraordinary learning opportunities for ALL students
      When used creatively by teachers, many electronic and computer-based tools can serve as assistive technologies
    • 5. Electronic Spellers and Dictionaries
    • 6. What is an Electronic Speller and Dictionary
      Helps students with:
      Correct Spelling
      Pronouncing words by listening to the words spoken aloud
      Define words by hear the definition of the word
      Practice writing words in cursive or print by watching the Electronic Speller and Dictionary write the words in cursive or print
      Writes on letter at a time when the machine pronounces it to better help students sound out the words, as well as write the words
      Great for all ages 
    • 7. Why does our School District Need the Electronic Speller and Dictionary?
      Fun, motivating, and engaging ways for students to build their vocabulary and spelling
      Students with Learning Disabilities have the ability with this device to hear the word and definition, and to see the word written and the spelling of the word
      Students can use this device to check their own writing assignments without the help of a teacher
    • 8. How will this Device be Used and by Who
      Will be used by the students to accomplish:
      spelling, find definition of words, and pronounce words correctly
      Special Education teachers will use this device to help students with learning disabilities pronounce words, write words correctly, and help these students build their vocabulary
    • 9. Evaluation of the Electronic Speller and Dictionary
      Spelling tests
      Listening to students read (pronouncing words)
      Definition tests or class discussions
      Saying a word and asking the class “What does ____ mean?”
    • 10. Electronic Storybooks
    • 11. What is the Electronic Storybook?
      Electronic Storybooks are interactive story books
      Students listen to the story and interact with the characters and within the different scenes
    • 12. Why does our School District Need the Electronic Storybooks?
      Fun and engaging way for students to learn to read
      Students build skills in:
      Word recognition
      Decoding stories
      What happened in the beginning, middle and end
      Comprehend the meaning behind the story
    • 13. How will the Electronic Storybook be Used and by Who?
      The Electronic Storybooks will be used by the students and the teachers to:
      Build on word recognition
      Definition of words
      Increase reading levels
    • 14. Evaluation of the Electronic Storybook
