Edtech’s role in preparing students with learning disabilities for higher ed
If one of your school’s goals is to help prepare students for college and higher education, you should check out our latest video. Mary McDowell Friends School is one of New York City’s leading schools for students with learning disabilities. In 2013, they started using Read&Write to help their students learn and succeed, enabling them to go to college and have a successful academic career.
Mary McDowell Friends School, based in Brooklyn, New York, is a K-12 college preparatory school for students with learning disabilities. We asked staff and students from the school to tell us how they use Read&Write and what benefits it brings to their education.
In the video, students of all grade levels discuss their favorite features within Read&Write, including the Dictionary, Word Prediction, Speech Input, Simplify Page, and more. With these tools, the students receive the support they need to be successful. In fact, studies show that 85-90% of special education students can meet regular diploma requirements with the right support.
Watch the video below to see how Mary McDowell Friends School paves the way for its students’ success with Read&Write.
