I am a 35-year-old director of marketing with a learning disability. I recently met with my CEO about my future with the company. He informed me that the only thing holding me back from moving into a CEO position in a few years is my lack of writing skills. He wants me to seek out some help with working on my LD. I have a degree in Management and Marketing and I do well with presentations, speeches and interacting with my clients, but I really need to work on my writing skills. What can I do?

I am severely dyslexic. Have several versions of Dragon Naturally Speaking speech recognition programs. None work for me. I cannot read precisely enough for the program to recognize my voice. Do you know of any other programs out there that do not require this type of reading to train the program?

I wanted to ask a question about PE and kids with learning disabilities. Is there any research or resources about the best methods to coach students with dyslexia or other learning disabilities and to help them learn individual and team skills the most effective way?

What technologies are available to help a college student with a reading disability access textbooks?

My daughter is a college freshman and has a reading disability. She learns best by listening to audio books on CD read by real people, not computer voices. However, she has had difficulty finding audio books for many of her textbooks. Are there software programs or devices that might help her with these texts? She might also benefit from having the text appear on her screen as it is read to her, but I'm not sure what would work best for her.

What technologies can help a high school student with dysgraphia in science and math classes?

What accommodations/modifications do you recommend for high school students in math and science when the main issue is dysgraphia? I have found that many of the "usual" accommodations (Alphasmarts, computers, voice activated programs, etc.) do not work as well due to the format of the math and science classes (i.e., drawing graphs, diagrams, writing in journals, etc.). What do you recommend?

What technology can help a ten-year-old child with learning disabilities?

My ten-year-old child has learning disabilities that I can't 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 don't 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 what's available? Please help.

What technology helps math, handwriting, and spelling?

I have been trying to find a list of assistive technology for my son who doesn't know his sounds, his handwriting is labored, and he doesn't know his multiplication facts. He has his math reading problems read to him, thank goodness. He remembers his spelling words long enough for the test, but come Monday, he can only remember a couple of them.

My son has had perfect conduct and perfect attendance. He's teachable, just not being taught. My main question is what should he be getting as to assistive technology? Thanks for your time and allowing me to ask you questions.

What technology helps students take notes in lectures?

Administrator

December 30, 2007 9:14:58 PM

My son is in high school and has trouble being able to take notes while listening to lectures. The teacher said that maybe he could tape record the lessons, but then my son just has to listen to them again and it takes twice as long. Any ideas on what we can do so he doesn't have to take all of these notes and listen at the same time?

What is the best technology available for students to use while researching on the internet when they can't read the articles they find. I am not looking for something as elaborate as Kurzweil - I want it to basically read to them while they research on the internet.

What technology options are available for home schooled children?

Bridget Brady

March 31, 2010 10:41:56 PM

My question is one of access to technology for home schooled children with LD. Based upon the home school groups that we belong to, there are a great many families who choose home school over public school for their LD children. We would like to have access to technology but unless a child is enrolled in the public school system, technology is often too expensive for many home schooling families. Any leads, connections, or suggestions for us?

What technology products can help students learn social skills?

Is there any technology that could help a child learn social skills? My nephew has been diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder and struggles with social skills and behavioral issues. My sister battles with him daily to get him to go to school and the school administration has recently suggested that he learn from home using an on-line program.

Though he is receiving medication for his anxiety, his social skills have really suffered. Learning from home might help with his anxiety, but how will that help him improve his social skills? Is there technology out there that might help him?

I am an OT and could use some help with technology resources and implementing them in the classroom with students with special needs. I would really like to know about any tools that could be helpful for students with motor and speech limitations in the general education classroom. The tools we are currently using don't integrate well into that setting. Where can I find tools that my students could use in the general education classroom?

What technology tools can I use in my work writing to make sure I havenít made errors?

Administrator

January 01, 2009 10:00:43 AM

I am a 32-year-old with dyslexia. I've been pretty successful and went to college and grad school. I had great teachers and accommodations and modifications when I was in school and was able to work around my disability a lot of the time. Now that I'm working, I'm finding one area that's always been a problem is cropping up — my spelling is terrible and my work emails are full of errors.

My friends and family understand when they get emails from me that there might a lot of mistakes, but I still spend hours going over everything I write trying to make sure it looks professional. Spell check on the computer helps, but the problem is it doesn't always pick up the mistakes I make. Sometimes I write a word correctly, but it's the wrong word. Or I spell something wrong, but it doesn't get picked up.

Sometimes if I have to write something really important for work, I send it to my brother first and ask him to proofread it, but I can't keep doing that. Are there any technology tools that I can use?

My 14 year old daughter struggles with math. We have tried several things, but she does not seem to retain the information. She enjoys games on the computer and likes technology. We would love to help her over the summer but aren't sure where to start! We are wondering… are there any technology programs, or tools, that you think would help her math skills?

What tools can help my son with LD learn a foreign language?

Liana Heitin

My 15-year-old son has a language-based learning disability. He is in the tenth grade and so far has been able to maintain good grades with the assistance of an educational support paraprofessional. However, he has now started taking required foreign language classes and is struggling with vocabulary, verbal exercises, and exams. Are there any technology tools or software programs that might help him?
