Dyslexia- Teaching Resources and Tools

Share this post:  
October is National Dyslexia Month, an occasion during which Educational Technology and Mobile Learning highlights resources and tools that educators and teachers can use to make learning more inclusive and accessible. In yesterday's post I covered the new and recent accessibility features added to Chromebooks and in today's post I am sharing with you this excellent educational resource from The National Center on Improving Literacy (NCIL) which I discovered through Lisa Monthie.

The Resource Repository in NCIL offers a wide variety of educational materials including videos, downloads, tools, websites recommendations and several other resources from reliable sources. The Dyslexia section features over 100 resources covering everything related to dyslexia. You can search these resources by audience (e.g., parents and families, schools and districts, and state agencies) and by resource type (e., activity, audio, article, document, game, presentation, professional development, workshop, lesson plan, tool, video, webinar, and many more).

Other than Dyslexia, the NCIL's repository also features educational resources pertaining to different areas including: assessment, general literacy, general reading, language development, reading disabilities, vocabulary, writing, remote learning, and many more. You can use the same search filters (i.e., by audience or by resource type) to narrow down your search query and locate relevant materials. 

As for The National Center on Improving Literacy (NCIL), it  "is a partnership among literacy experts, university researchers, and technical assistance providers, with funding from the United States Department of Education. {their} Mission is to increase access to, and use of, evidence-based approaches to screen, identify, and teach students with literacy-related disabilities, including dyslexia".
