Abstract

This paper discusses how information communication technology (ICT) can facilitate high quality teaching and learning for dyslexic children and their spelling. Previous research has suggested that ICT can have a positive effect on dyslexic children’s spelling ability and confidence (Lange et al, 2006, Tuner and Pughe, 2003). The use of an IPad therefore was utilised in small group spelling sessions to assess the effect ICT, specifically IPads, can have on pupils who have a diagnosis of dyslexia or significant literacy difficulties as recognised by the school. It was concluded that the children had improved spelling confidence and ability when various methods were introduced to the children on the IPad such as spell check and a speak tool software to hear the word. The results were consistent with previous research and theories, showing ICT positively effecting high quality teaching and learning for dyslexic children and their spelling.
