Listen Up for Reading Help

LA-AudioApp3Dyslexia not only is frustrating for students, but for teachers who lack the resources to guide these students to fluent reading. Listening is a great technique. Listening to books being read on an iPhone, iPod or iPad, that is. Nonprofit organization Learning Ally can help with a new version of its Audio reading program.  Learning Ally now allows direct downloading of content and the software has bookmarking (both for memorable and hard to follow passages), the ability to return to the last-read place. My favorite is that the software can speed up and slow down the reading so that the student can get the most out of it. The organization has a library of 70,000 volumes and teaching resources. Learning Ally is free for those with version 1.0 and 1.1 of the app and it costs $20 for others. The service costs $99 a year.
