Dear Advocates:

If you all are talking about Technology.

Technology has flattened the hurdles for the Dyslexic student and adults. It seems to me, the academic environment is slow to act on new and free technology. Bookshare.Org has taken textbooks, speech to text technology and the Internet, and have combined them into a powerful learning tool.

Bookshare.Org and the United States Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) have joined money and technology to create a free for all students with qualifying disabilities a tool which is under utilized. It is now in the hands of educators, ready to be applied to the students who need them.

Education and the printed word is no longer a hurdle which dyslexic students and adults have to jump over.

Recently the below was written and submitted to Bookshare.org. Consider visiting Bookshare.org to see the rest of the Finalist essay's on how Government funded funds have change their lives thru bookshare. The link is: www.bookshare.org/about/tellUsYourStory
