Supporting dyslexic students with maths

08 October 2021 10:45 - 11:15

In this session, you’ll increase your understanding and practical knowledge of the importance of supporting dyslexic students beyond traditional areas of literacy into the world of maths. We’ll explore key accessibility features within ‘EquatIO’ from Texthelp to understand how best to use specialist maths support tools like text to speech and prediction to help those students with increased accessibility and gain the support they need across all levels of maths and science.  Working hand in hand with Read&Write, you’ll understand how dyslexic students can receive the same consistent support in every subject and across any content type.
