A Literacy Tool for Students with Significant Physical Disabilities? Yes!

Shelby at computer screen shown2Kurzweil 3000-firefly provides literacy supports for students with language-based learning disabilities. What about students with more significant physical challenges? Will the reading, writing, studying skills, and test taking tools in Kurzweil 3000-firefly be accessible to help them? Absolutely!

Our friend, Shelby Nurse is an example of somebody with above average intelligence, but cerebral palsy limits her physical movements and an eye condition makes reading difficult. She doesn’t let these restrictions hold her back! Kurzweil 3000 has given her a voice and the independence to persevere through school to pursue a degree in psychology. (Watch Shelby in action.)

You’re invited to join us in a one-hour webinar on Monday, September 23 at 12:00 PM ET as Suzanne Feit walks you through the many features such as keyboard shortcuts and IntelliKeys overlays for Kurzweil 3000-firefly. Suzanne will demonstrate how you can support students like Shelby who need alternative access to text to help them keep up with grade-level work and become more independent learners.

In the webinar, we will showcase using IntelliKeys and switches so that students can read independently using the tools in Kurzweil 3000-firefly. The secret is keyboard shortcuts! We will provide access to overlays that enable users to access Kurzweil 3000 as well as firefly, Kurzweil 3000’s web-based solution. If you work with students who have physical challenges or if you use IntelliKeys or IntelliSwitch, this session will provide you with tips and resources to provide additional access for your students so they can enjoy the success Shelby has achieved.

Sign up today! We look forward to your participation.
