Access for ALL Read&Write Tour Session 2 of a 2 Part Series

February 08, 2022 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm

Read&Write for Education by Texthelp is a Universal Support tool designed to support all students. 

Our classrooms are full of students with all different strengths, talents, and abilities. Each student is unique in how they learn best. We want to provide universal support tools to all general education students to promote inclusion and independence. Some students may need access to text by listening to information, some students may prefer listening to content material to gain access to information and some students may need materials presented in their preferred language. The Texthelp Universal Support Tool Read&Write has many features that could potentially support each and every student in your class differently.  

Read&Write for Education empowers students to use technology to eliminate barriers to their learning.  Students with the tools can remove distractions from busy websites, use study tools like closed captioning, as well as provide text-to-speech for websites and the tool provides a built-in PDF reader.   

According to the CAST Universal Design for Learning Framework all students benefit from Multiple Means of Representation, choice, and options. During the second session, participants will analyze classroom and individual student Read&Write data to understand how this data can drive your instruction.
