Bringing You a Background of Expertise

Literacy Solutions is exceptionally well prepared to instruct students in the use of assistive technology and speech-recognition software. Our staff co-authored a multi-sensory program designed to teach phonetics to individuals who have difficulty learning to read and who have primary reading disorders. Staff experience includes action research for the National Center for Improved Practices in Special Education. Literacy Solutions's director contributed a vital chapter to the book Dragon NaturallySpeaking® Complete, about using speech-recognition technology with students who have learning disabilities.

The chapter — available now as a separate book, There's a Dragon in My School — contains information and tips about the use of speech recognition by teachers and specialists with students who have learning disabilities. Its subchapters suggest the wide range of expertise you can expect from Literacy Solutions (read excerpted case studies):
