Call Scotland – Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties


CALL Scotland, a service of the University of Edinburgh shares information and resources on assistive technology. They produce wonderful visual app wheels of apps and tools to support individuals with disabilities. They are a quick glance of tools or apps categorized within separate subcategories in their app wheels. One of their recent posters updated in 2018 presents Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties. This recent app wheel visually presents the already curated apps by subcategories that will support learners with reading and writing challenges.

I love these app wheels and the subcategories to help identify new and old apps available. Check out the complete poster on their website: Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties.

Check out CALL Scotland posters and leaflets at their website.

H/T to CALL Scotland for their diligence with curating apps for special needs. Not an easy task when there are thousands of apps available!
