The Dyslexia-friendly Classroom

We build tools like Snap&Read™ becuase they can be deeply effective against the hurdles of Dyslexia, but it takes more than that to build a Dyslexia-friendly classroom. Kindness, ongoing evaluation, building experiences, these things are vital to creating class spaces that can reach the full potential of every student.


    Some common signs of dyslexia can often be overlooked, making it hard to diagnose:


    Has extended hearing; hears things not said or apparent to others; easily distracted by sounds


    Complains of dizziness, headaches or stomach aches while reading


    Extremely keen sighted and observant, or lacks depth perception and peripheral vision


    Can be ambidextrous, and often confuses left/right, over/under.


    Difficulty sustaining attention; seems "hyper" or "daydreamer".

Dyslexic students who feel badly about themselves may not have the social confidence or skill to seek and maintain friendships, and may become withdrawn from friends and family.

Hearing text spoken aloud can make all the difference

Dyslexic students can benefit from triangulating on text, making sure that for every word they see, they are able to access that meaning in other ways, including through images and sound. Often, a simple text reader accommodation can make all the difference.
