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?
Congratulations to your son’s school for providing the opportunity for parent input! The Tech Matrix can help you bring the perspective of an informed parent to the table. This matrix is intended to serve as a resource that matches technology tools with supporting literature on promising practices for the instruction of reading for students with disabilities. Through the matrix you will able to examine the features of reading software for students who struggle with various aspects of reading, as well as the research base on which such products are developed and used.
