Ella, a high school junior with dyslexia, teams up with special educators to get the most effective accommodations for reading including Bookshare and other digital tools. “Reading with your ears or any sort of accommodation is still reading and it counts,” explains Ella. “Any way you can access a book is worthwhile. I love to read! Once you find the tools that work for you, it’s so much easier.”
While students with reading barriers are increasingly getting the accommodations they need, the impact of not fully accommodating a student adds up. As educators and the broader community that supports students with reading barriers, we can help solve this problem and drastically reduce the number of times students are unable to learn.
