Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Jun 21, 2019

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

I am always browsing the internet for different apps on iOS or Android devices. I recently stumbled upon the Visual Reading – Special Education app.

The Visual Reading app was developed by a parent who has a child with autism. According to its description on Google Play, the app is an “educational platform for reading development, speech and language understanding, speech production training, and more. It utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (or ABA) principles to engage children in reading.”
The Visual Reading app features:

Automated learning statistics
Wide learning settings
Optional font for students with dyslexia
Index of about 900 nouns, verbs, and numbers
Ability to create multiple student profiles
And more
Check it out on Google Play to learn more!
