Teenager develops a reading aloud app

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Story

A Coeur d’Alene High School junior has created a text-to-audio app that started as a way to help his brother pass organic chemistry.

Morgan Dixon, 17, launched Outloud Reader a month ago. About 10 students in fourth and fifth grades who have dyslexia are now using it for studies at Sorensen Magnet School for the Arts and Humanities in Coeur d’Alene.

“My brother was at WSU and working 60 hours a week at a winery with a bunch of hard classes like organic chemistry,” Dixon said. “He wanted to make his book into an audio version, or just any of his books, so he told me that idea, and it started growing from that.”

Helping students with dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Researchers estimate that dyslexia affects between 5 and 12 percent of the U.S. population — and as many as 80 percent of students who struggle with reading.

If you find that statistic startling, you’re not alone: It wasn’t until 2017 that New York State clarified that a diagnosis of dyslexia could be used in classifying students with a learning disability in order to determine eligibility for special education services and Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
