Hello Families of PHSS,
We continue to look for new ways to support students with their academic coursework. There is a program called Read/Write that has many functions to support students. Some of the functions available are; dictionary, word prediction, speech to text, highlighter, pictures and it can read text to the student. PHSS students in grades 7-9 would be most familiar with this tool as it was used at Madeira and other Elementary schools on the coast, in addition to using it at PHSS.
Here is a link to give you an idea. https://www.texthelp.com/en-us/products/read-write/#
School District 46’s Inclusion Tech Coordinator also came in October to show all students how to use this program. It’s just like using Siri on your cell phone.
Some students may find it very helpful and it can work on any device as long as your child logs onto their G46 account.
