Supporting students with additional literacy needs

Almost 15% of college freshmen report having some form of learning disability, and their graduation rates can be significantly lower than the general population.

What’s more, the transition from high school to college or university isn’t always an easy one. Moving to a more independent study environment – together with a dramatic increase in the volume of reading and writing that’s expected – can highlight previously hidden literacy problems.

Lowered academic achievement and accompanying lack of self-esteem correlates directly with higher drop-out rates. And that’s a major issue for any college where student retention is the key to maximised revenues.

Students in Higher and Further Education at thousands of universities, colleges and academies in North America rely on our award-winning cross-platform family of assistive technology solutions. Our literacy software helps with reading and independent study – and it’s great for ELL/ESL students whose first language isn't English.

Every student learns differently. That's why our easy-to-use assistive technologies are accessible across a wide range of platforms and devices - including PCs, Macs and tablets - to suit students' personal study needs and lifestyles.

Maximizing your college or university's appeal in an international marketplace

Today’s universities are attracting an ever increasing volume of online applications from international students. In a higher education marketplace that's truly global, it's vital to ensure that your website is easily accessible by the widest possible audience. Our assistive technology can foster greater diversity and make your university's website even more appealing to prospective students from overseas, helping them research and apply for courses online.

Tristan Young

Without a doubt, Texthelp’s Read&Write makes me a more confident student and professional. I was very insecure about my aptitude and my intelligence before even though I knew I was smart. Thanks to Read&Write, I can write confidently and am no longer afraid to submit applications for jobs.
