Limited Capacity seats available

Reading brings great rewards for some, but for others, it is a painstaking activity. With the right tools, even those who loathe reading can become avid readers, first by learning to read effectively, then reading to learn, and soon becoming lifelong learners. Equipped with stronger literacy skills, these individuals can actively pursue the educational and career advancement opportunities that await them. Learn how assistive reading technologies remove barriers by helping people with various learning differences to read in ways that work for them.

Participants will be able to: describe how to access and use a variety of assistive reading technologies for people who read differently; explain the unique characteristics of these technologies and the types of learners who will benefit from each one; and explain the benefits of Bookshare, a key source of accessible ebooks for people who experience reading barriers.
