    Instructional support for all!

    All are welcome!  The ECSD is excited to announce a presentation designed for families to better understand the supports made available to students who struggle with dyslexia, although teachers and parents of ANY student can benefit!

    Snap&Read is a tech tool on every Escambia Chromebook, and contains several excellent, useful tools that are listed below.  This presentation was developed with parents in mind, but teachers, if this is also of interest to YOU, you are most welcome to join us and learn more about this valuable tool at your fingertips!  The Snap&Read tools to be covered include:

    • Text reader (TTS) that simplifies vocabulary, translates text, reads inaccessible text (OCR), and captures and cites sources.

    • Color Overlay / Reading Line Guides- Color Overlay and Reading Line Guides brings focus to text paragraph-by-paragraph and even line-by-line—by masking the reading area. 
    • Picture Supported Dictionary - Clear definitions plus multiple icon representations enhance meaning.
