  3. “Phonograph books...will speak to blind people without effort on their part“ -Thomas Edison, 1997 Assistive Media was the first internet-based audio reading service for persons with print reading barriers thereby opening a unique avenue of accessibility for many individuals with cognitive, physical, and communication disabilities. Our narrators provide an engaging solution that allows access to previously inaccessible reading materials leading to greater independence and integration into the mainstream of society and community life.

  6. TECHNOLOGY EXAMPLES: FM LISTENING SYSTEMS -Frequency Modulation System can reduce background noise in the class room and amplify what the teachers say this can help w/ auditory processing issues as well as attention issues. Also used to help kids with hearing impairment. .
  7. Reading guidelines. Reading guides are good tools for kids who have trouble with visual tracking or who need help staying focused on the page. The plastic strip highlights one line of text while blocking out surrounding words that might be distracting. The strip is also easy to move down the page as your child reads.
  8. Audio Players and Recorders It may help your child to be able to listen to the words as she reads them on the page. Many e- books have audio files, and smartphones and tablet computers come with text-to-speech software that can read aloud anything on your child’s screen. If she struggles with writing or taking notes, an audio recorder can capture what the teacher says in class so your child can listen to it again at home.
  9. • Advantages in Assistive Media It can make them Confident Learning disabilities like dyslexia can often result in a lack of self-confidence. Sufferers struggle on a daily basis with tasks their peers find easy and this may chip away at their enthusiasm. Eventually, it can result in a feeling of failure. However, being able to keep up with everything other people are doing allows them to break this vicious circle and feel more positive.
  10. Students can better reach their potential It is commonly assumed that children with disabilities are not as intelligent as their peers without them, but this is simply not true. In fact, they often have very high IQs, but are not able to demonstrate this because of the obstacles in their way. For instance, a child who cannot speak may have been placed in a special, segregated classroom and had to spend significant amounts of time on speech therapy just so educators could understand them.
  11. It can help them be more independent; Dyslexic children and those with limited mobility in their hands used to be easy to pinpoint in the classroom or examination room because they would have a note-taker assigned to them, who would write down everything they said so it would be legible to markers. With speech recognition software or even LiveScribe pens though, this isn't necessary. They can work alone and build a sense of achievement and independence, yet teachers and invigilators will still be able to mark their work just as they would anyone else's.
  12.

THAT’S ALL
