British Dyslexia Action, BDA –
Part of their role is to raise the profile of the use of ICT in schools to support dyslexic learners. They have recently put together an ICT supplement to complement the existing Dyslexia Friendly School’s pack.
ICT is recognised as a key tool to help dyslexic learners in the classroom in both learning and teaching experiences, as well as accessing or recording written information.
When ICT is used effectively, many of the barriers to and differences in learning, can be reduced or overcome. These may include reading, writing, spelling, accessing the curriculum, learning vocabulary, improving phonic skills and assisting planning, recording and presenting information. This may be a result of using appropriate speech supported software, selected hardware, or specific programs to support and improve memory skills, planning and organisation, including Maths.
