If I can to pick one website to recommend it would be Learning Ally. It has proved to be a wonderful resource for our family. Recently, I was able to take a 5 hour class on reading and writing the Orton Gillingham way. I learned so much about how to structure a writing program for not only my son, but the students I tutor as well. I am excited to implement everything I learned.
One of the reasons I love Learning Ally is they have webinars all the time for parents and educators. For example coming up this month they have a Parent Webinar Series: Assistive Tech for Writing Worksheets. In December, they are hosting an online conference, Spotlight on Dyslexia, for parents and educators. There will be over 20 sessions.
The main reason I love Learning Ally is the audio books. Reading is challenging for dyslexics and audio books allow them to access material they may not be able to get to on their own. For our son, it has allowed him to read dozens of books that he would probably have gawked at if it wasn’t for audio books.
Recently, I’ve noticed they are focusing on college students which is really, really in our horizon. So I am excited to start introducing my son to Learning Ally so he can start using the resources himself.
