ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY SUMMER CAMP
July 26- July 29, 2021
Students with reading and writing challenges often have great ideas but trouble accessing information or getting their thoughts on paper. At our assistive technology summer camp students will use a variety of apps, extentions, software, and websites to help them gather information and write effectively.
Within the context of language arts assignments, students will learn about apps and software to help them create, communicate, and collaborate without letting their dyslexia get in the way. Some topics covered include speech-to-text, text-to-speech, word prediction, graphic organizers, and more.
Laptop or chromebook required

This camp is for students entering grades 3-8 who would benefit from learning technology features that will accommodate difficulties in reading and writing.
Praise for DAGN's Assistive Tech Camp
It was the first time my daughter was in a class with solely other students with dyslexia.
Camp includes a 30-minute remote interview pre-session with the student to determine their individualized AT needs AND a 30-minute remote post-session with the parents to provide a summary of what was introduced at camp.
