Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Apr 8, 2021

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!

Looking for a fun app to help teach your child or student how to read, write, and spell?  The OgStar Reading app is a comprehensive, multisensory 35-lesson literacy game.

According to the App Store, OgStar Reading takes students on a “captivating” reading adventure.  It includes built-in minigames and rewards to motivate and engage children.  One neat component about this literacy app is that it has handwriting recognition feedback, speech recognition feedback, audio-visual synchronization, voiceover correction feedback, and built-in word pronunciation features.

Other features include:

Multisensory, structured literacy game helps students of all ages to independently develop evidence-based literacy skills
35 lesson literacy game with about 1 years' worth of curriculum
Ideal for preschool - 2nd-grade students
And much more!
