Audiobooks cannot replace explicit reading instruction, because a balance of support and accommodations is needed for struggling readers. In this webinar, Learning Ally’s Terrie Noland, National Director of Educator Engagement, discusses the when, where, how, and why of effectively incorporating audiobooks as an assistive technology tool for students with dyslexia. Topics include:
• Dispelling the myths of audiobooks
• How audiobooks can have different uses in different situations
• Effectively mapping the use of audiobooks to the stages of reading development framework to support learning in the best way possible
• Ways that student motivation and competency play into the use of audiobooks
K-12 general and special educators, administrators, SPED directors, principals, librarians, and learning/reading specialists are invited to watch this recorded webinar.
