Posted: May 22, 2018


Do you have a student who is struggling with reading the internet for research, organizing their thoughts for writing papers, forgetting suffixes and forgetting whole words when writing? Kurzweil Literacy Software offers solutions for all of these problems and more.


Kurzweil 3000 software was created for students with dyslexia and other language-based challenges. The goal of the software is to give students with reading, spelling and writing challenges the tools to succeed. It has graphic organizers for papers, plug-ins to read any web site, articles can be scanned in to be read, highlighted and manipulated into outlines for paper-writing purposes.  It has predictive spelling, translators for ESL students, and books and textbooks from Bookshare hook-up seamlessly with it.  It has text-to-speech and speech-to-text functions. It gives students many ways to research, organize, and edit.  Recommended age: seventh grade and beyond.

 

Aspire Academy has a site license to distribute the software and we teach parents, students and teachers how to use it.  Come for a free demonstration on:

 

  • TH June 28, 6:30 - 7:30 pm at the Johnston Public Library, 6700 Merle Hay Road, 50131
  • TH July 19, 6:30 - 7:30 pm at the Urbandale Public Library, 3520 86th Street, 50322

Customer Comments

"Our family wants to thank you from the bottom of our heart! We were so glad fate had our paths cross at the right moment...our first grade son was struggling with reading and starting to dislike school. You helped us understand his unique challenges and with tutoring, you’ve helped him become a great reader. Perhaps more importantly, this built his academic confidence and ability to learn that will forever change his life path! We are so grateful we started him early, and had the guidance and care from you all. We are so proud he has graduated (4th grade) - but I know he will actually miss seeing his friends at tutoring; he really came to love going! Thank you for being an incredible resource at just the right time! And please do use this testimonial, and refer folks to chat with us about our experience!"
