Here is a link to a blog with helpful tools for dyslexic students. I would be interested in learning what other technologies dyslexic students use and whether teachers are supportive of their use in the classroom. "www.bdmtech.blogspot.com"

I'm not a special educator, but a colleague suggested these sites as good resources:

Thanks for sharing these tools. I've got a number of students with dyslexia in my classes, but I was wondering: what do you think are the key features of a good app that assists students with dyslexia?

Mostly, I'd say the key feature is that it works for the kid and the teacher. Since each student and classroom is unique, I think it would be hard to make generalizations. Obviously things like affordability and accessibility are key, I guess.
