Testimonials

"Julie is an expert in the field of assistive technologies and a champion of the cause in meeting the challenges of dyslexia. As a family with a dyslexic child, Julie has helped us successfully navigate through a daunting myriad of apps to select those most appropriate for our son in meeting the challenges he faces both inside and outside the classroom. Julie has opened out eyes to a suite of technologies that have been created specifically for dyslexia and shown us how Cooper can leverage off them to support his current and future needs. Cooper enjoys using I Read Write, Audio note and more recently Explain Everything. Cooper finds the lessons with Julie, fun, interesting, and interactive. After years of struggling to read and write, these apps have given him a sense of confidence that has until recently eluded him. Tasks including homework, previously seen as a struggle are now less challenging for both parent and child and have translated into him achieving more in the classroom."
