The benefits of apple products for individuals with dyslexia is the topic covered in this article HERE. A powerful tool, several of the features of iOS and apple devices that individuals with dyslexia can benefit from include accessibility features, third-party apps, opportunities for multi-sensory learning, and UDL potential.
The UDL potential is significant here. Imagine students of varying abilities all working on the same project just in different ways. Some students are listening to material. Some are reading it. Some students are typing information. Still others are dictating it. Diverse set of abilities all working to achieve common goals. Now that is a truly differentiated classroom rooted in UDL principles and supported using iOS tools.
I would like to thank the University of Edinburgh for the following graphic showing iPad apps for students with dyslexia and reading/writing challenges.
