What advice can you give me about the effectiveness of a computer training program vs. Slingerland tutoring for auditory processing disorders?

My child, who is in the 2nd grade, has been tested and found to have an auditory processing issue. This may be why he is well behind his peers in reading. I am considering the Fast ForWord© computer training program. Do you have any advice for me regarding its use as opposed to traditional Slingerland tutoring?

What assistive technology tools could we use with a middle school student so he doesnít feel singled out and different from his peers?

We have a middle school student that has difficulty with written work and reading difficulties. We would like to get some of the voice-activated software for him. We also wanted him to start using the computer and learning keyboarding but there may be some fine motor weaknesses. He is embarrassed by his difficulties and does not want to appear different to the other children. Do you have any ideas for how we might get him to use assistive technology tools and feel less singled out?

I work as an OT with high schools students and wanted to know… what cell phone applications can benefit students with ADHD? We have used the basic features (calendar, alarms, etc) but have not explored additional applications and are wondering what other ideas or suggestions you might have.

What online resources are available for a student in a rural area without access to special education services?

Bridget Brady

My six-year-old son is obsessed with super heroes. He often talks about his favorites (Batman, Superman, Spiderman, etc.) and is very fond of watching their movies and cartoons. He has an amazing memory about things he is interested in and can remember everything about superhero movies and cartoons he likes but still does not recognize his numbers and letters. I'm very worried about his studies and his reading. How can I help him improve his reading skills? We don't have access to special education near our home as we live in a remote town in Pakistan.

What options are there for a teenager who needs a communication device?

Bridget Brady

September 09, 2010 9:19:59 PM

I have a 15-year-old daughter that has multiple disabilities. She is nonverbal with some vocal sounds, is visually impaired, and has mental and physical deficits. She has full use of her right hand and a left side stroke. I'm wondering … is there any technology that she can possibly use for communication other than Cheap Talk 8? This is heavy and bulky for a child with limited hand-use, and it is too large for her desk at school. In addition, I am trying to compile a communication book, similar to PECS (picture exchange communication system), but am hoping there is some kind of technology that is available and easier to access for her. Are there additional communication devices that you would recommend?

I have a 6 year old son who is diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Although he is high functioning and has already met his reading goals at the kindergarten level, he does have difficulty with reading comprehension. I have the opportunity to provide ideas for reading software that will be used in the new learning center being developed by his school. I would like to bring ideas to the table for software that has been shown to be successful with struggling readers. Do you have any suggestions?

What recommendations does the Tech Expert have for students with short-term memory difficulties?

I have a 13-year-old son who has difficulty with short term memory. He can only hold a few pieces of information in his mind at one time. Because of this his processing is slower and many times information does not make it to long term memory. Is there anything I can do to help him?

What resources are available for assessing student use of technology?

I've started using new media tools (blogs, wikis, etc.) in my classroom to differentiate instruction, and have recently begun to explore the use of virtual worlds and social networking with my kids. They seem to really enjoy using technology, and I'm seeing some of my struggling learners become more engaged with the material.

Are there resources available for assessing 21st century skills? If my students are learning in non-traditional ways, how can I show their progress?

What resources can help parents find technology tools for children with disabilities?

Administrator

My ten-year-old child has lots of learning disabilities that I canít explain in this letter because it would take too long. My husband and I think technology can help him -- at least it helps us on our jobs. But what kind of technology can help him? We donít know where to start. Is there a person who we could just tell everything to and have them let us know what to buy? Or a place like a store for people with learning disabilities? Or anywhere we can go just to learn whatís available? Please help.

What social networking sites are safe and appropriate for a student with learning disabilities?

Bridget Brady

I'm looking for ideas to provide appropriate and safe social networking for a student I work with. She's in middle school and very social, but at an early to mid-elementary level academically. Because she has moved around and been in different programs, she doesn't have many friends here yet and is very lonely. I'd like to find a way for her to connect with kids her age, but I'm worried about her safety online, especially on sites like MySpace and Facebook. Any ideas?

I am an adult with ADHD and learning disabilities. While I have been successful at learning how to read and write through teaching children with special needs, there is still one area of my life that is left in a mess. I cannot seem to get a grasp on my finances.

I have tried the organizational strategies that I teach to my students. I have tried using the websites set up by banks. Nothing seems to work for me. Is there any technology that can help me with this? I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Administrator

My son has learning disabilities and struggles with organization. When he was younger, he had fewer assignments so we could usually keep on top them. Now that he has several different teachers and multiple assignments each day, he's really struggling to keep them all straight and remember when he has homework. Is there some kind of online program that could help him? Are there tools that teachers, students and parents could access to keep up on assignments, grades, quizzes, etc.?

What software helps students improve their typing on a keyboard?

Administrator

June 01, 2008 9:57:37 AM

Our son has a non-verbal learning disability, (very fine) hand tremor and poor graphomotor control. His handwriting is either fast and sketchy or slow and frustrating for him. His fourth grade teacher will allow him to use a keyboard exclusively for assignments; however, his keyboarding skills are still not sufficient to do this. I know he needs to practice keyboarding at home — are there any programs out there he can use on his own to practice typing?
