- Tablets and digital readers could help improve reading for dyslexic students via what are known as Accessible Instruction Materials (AIM).
- AIMs include braille, audio, large print, and digital text in a Digital Accessible Information System (DAISY) format, which can easily be presented on a tablet.
- EdSurge suggests that parents and educators push districts about the availability of such resources and start a dialog with publishers about making sure more content is available in these forms.
As EdSurge explains, tools like these should be explored for all children with learning disabilities. According to the article, 15% to 20% of the population has a language-based disability, which translates to one in five students.
