  • We want to thank you for taking time to come to today’s training- you were named by your school as being the lead persons to receive PD on use of the new Read &amp; Write Gold textreader software from TextHELP! You are now joining 550 KY schools that are using this technology to address literacy issues by improving student access to the general curriculum. By becoming one of the KY ETEXT Schools, this will put you in direct contact with a full range of resources and supports to help you use this technology to benefit not just students with disabilities, but also any other student who is in need of reading supports. Our goal today is not just to inform you about UDL and use of RWGold, but to equip you with everything you need to take this same training back to your school.
