Student with Dyslexia Blossoms with Assistive Technology
Published on Apr 21, 2015
Assistive technology, also known as assistive tech or AT, has proven benefits for those with various learning disabilities including dyslexia. As a child, Brian Meersma had a ravenous appetite for knowledge, but his dyslexia forced him to rely on on family members to read to him. After discovering assistive technology, he gained independence and is now thriving as a student at Cornell University. Brian was one of Learning Ally’s National Achievement Award winners in 2015, and has become an expert champion for technologies that help students with learning differences succeed.
