Audiobook Appreciation Month: Accessible Ways for Students to Learn & Grow
June is Audiobook Appreciation Month! Using audiobooks allows your students to “read with their ears” and improve their vocabulary. Along with supporting children with learning disabilities, audiobooks help students engage more directly with content and use critical thinking skills to comprehend content.
Tips to Share With Families: Audiobooks Can Keep Children Engaged Over the Summer
Audiobooks can help parents support their child’s reading skills during the summer months. Digital reading technology allows students to reread difficult phrases, break down unfamiliar words, and read virtually anywhere. You can work with parents to navigate reading with audiobooks and encourage their children to continue developing their reading and comprehension skills.
The Importance of Assistive Technology in Schools
From audiobooks to computer and iPad accessories, implementing assistive technology in schools is essential to supporting your students. There are benefits to using assistive technology in the classroom, such as:
- Aids group instruction
- Teaches cause-and-effect relationships
- Improves visual tracking
- Strengthens fine motor skills
Assistive technology can transform your classroom by providing an accessible learning environment for each student.
PTS is dedicated to advancing education and progress for every student by transforming the classroom with our education-based therapy solutions. As an aspiring lead provider of therapeutic services in the classroom, our approach and related services support each student’s academic, behavioral, and social-emotional growth.
