Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Computer Support

Ironically many of my students may struggle reading this post but hopefully parents/carers/friends can relay this information to my students as necessary.

If you want any further information on anything mentioned please feel free to contact me via my website: www.rebecca.kesler.co.uk

Below are my top 5 computer support tips for Dyslexia/Dyscalculia students.

Tip 1: PDF reader - change the colour of the screen

You can change the colour of pdf's in Adobe Acrobat Reader (see video below).  The basic version of Adobe Acrobat Reader is free to download.

Tip 2: Font - Open Dyslexia Font

You can download a free font which is supposed to support Dyslexic reading and writing.  The font can be found here on SEN Teacher.org.

Tip 3: Word - change the colour of the screen

You can change the colour of Office Word documents (see video below).


Tip 4: Office and Dictation

Office has now got voice recognition and you can dictate to any Microsoft program.


Tip 5: Audio books

Audible supplies audio books and you can set up a subscription with Amazon if you like to read a lot (click here for info).  Some libraries also have a free audio book system so it is worth checking this out next time you go to the library also.
