Online, March 16th, 2022. Part of the 2021-2022 workshop series with the Assistive Technology Conference of New England. The iPad has steadily improved as an assistive technology tool for students with learning disabilities.
* The built-in accessibility of iPadOS includes text-to-speech, dictation, and word prediction that can help students with reading and writing.
* In addition, there are many AT-related apps that can be used to make language-based activities easier.
* Since many apps have single or limited functions, the challenge is figuring out how to combine apps in order to complete multi-step or complex tasks in school.
* The practice of combining apps into workflows is known colloquially as “app smashing.”
* This presentation will focus on various app workflows that LD students can use to complete various assignments.
* Attention will be given to schoolwork involving reading, writing, and note taking.
