About the Program

eLearning has created widening learning gaps for students with disabilities specifically dysgraphia and language needs. Providing writing tools to these students helps bridge gaps across assignments and for communication. In this webinar, we’ll show how Co:Writer helps these students better access their full writing capabilities using voice typing, translation, and word prediction – across websites, PDFs, email, and Google Classroom.

Participants will learn:

  1. How Co:Writer helps get ideas down without fearing the mechanics of writing
  2. Access academic and topic-specific vocabulary
  3. Listen to and independently edit work before turning in assignments

Attendees receive a Word Prediction Screening Tool PDF and a link to try Co:Writer Universal free for 30 days.
