17. Dyslexia friendly

I decided to look up "dyslexia friendly" on the internet, just to see what appeared, thinking there may be something with respect to ICT. I am delighted to say that I found this - the section on "Using ICT to support dyslexic pupils" in the BDA's Dyslexia Friendly Schools pack.

Hallo Ian
I find your site invaluable. Many thanks for your hard work.
I work with learners with dyslexia and have a query about voice recognition software.
How useful can it be for primary age children? Is it used widely in schools at secondary level?
I do not know of any up-to-date research or practice. That has not stopped me from bloggong about it however!
I'd be most grateful for your comments.

Did you spot the (not so deliberate) mistake?
I meant 'blogging'.
I am not dyslexic but my spelling's getting worse. Must be the company I keep!
