Next TTR4L session

Visual communication to support dyslexia students

Students with who struggle with words can communicate and create in alternative ways using visual methods. In our April session John Vincent and Fiona Balfe will talk about several iPad apps that encourage creativity and communication. Words are not ruled out, but are not the primary medium, and in each case can be inserted by speech to text using SIRI. Apps to be highlighted will be Scratch Junior (free), Book Creator / Pictello, and Clicker Books.

When? - Thursday 27th April at 7.15 pm for 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Where? - At the Presbyterian Church Hall, 8 Park Rd, Cheltenham
