SEND Update 2

Dear Parents and Carers

Please find below some useful information as to how IT can be used to support reading and writing at home. We hope that you will find it useful. The dictation tool is particularly useful for pupils who may have difficulties with written recording and spelling.  Immersive reader is a useful tool for pupils who may find reading difficult.

Support with Writing

Dictate your documents using Word
