SEE DICK RUN. SEE JANE RUN.
For many of us, these were the first words we learned to read.
For many others, they see and read…
SEE KICD NUR. SEE ENAJ NUR.
While others can’t see or read DICK RUN at all.
“Though many children grow up hearing a broad vocabulary and being read to from infancy, others enter school without knowing the names of letters or how to count. For these children, reading and learning can be a struggle. If they are unable to overcome this obstacle, it affects a child's enthusiasm for learning, ability to interact with others and success in school and their loss affects all of society.” Letter from Mrs. Bush
Colligo Corp announces development of Assistive Technology that aids many to not only read but also read better than their peers. All ages can be assisted, from school age to the graying baby-boomers. Those who suffer from many varieties of reading impairments, -the blind and visually impaired, individuals who suffer from dyslexia, scotopia and the learning disabled.
“Innovations of this nature that use readily available technology to improve access to the written word, provide knowledge, freedom and power. Without these basic rights, the ability to self advocate becomes very difficult, therefore hindering independence,” said Dr. Dean Stenehjem, Superintendent of the Washington State School for the Blind.
“Assistive technology, loaded on individuals’ computers, allows the written word from documents, books, and magazines, etc, to be spoken back and highlighted on the computer screen. For the blind and visually impaired this opens a new-found “information super highway”, for those with dyslexia, this creates a connection in the brain and allows the recognition of the word later.” states Doug Powles, President of Colligo Corp.
technology is being made available to Libraries and all Government agencies who
are complying with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act http://www.usdoj.gov/crt/508/508home.html,and
educational facilities complying with “No Child Left Behind”
For individuals with reading and/or vision impairments, Colligo greatly reduces the price of its technology.
