Education

In Australia one in 10 individuals has a learning disability, with 80% of these having dyslexia.

Many people have difficulty reading at school, and this can continue to be a significant problem for them when seeking employment, in TAFE and further education, and of course in general life.   

Reading difficulties are often associated with dyslexia, vision impairment, and learning disabilities.  Many young people with ADHD and ASD also struggle to keep up with their peers at school and need extra support – either from teacher aides, SPELD specialist tutors or from text-to-speech devices such as C Pen and OrCam, which has been trialled successfully in several schools.

Quantum works with individuals, families, occupational therapists, speech therapists and relevant allied health professionals to find positive outcomes for anyone with a reading disability.

Reading Anywhere - Beyond the Classroom

In this Talk-to-the-Experts webinar, Quantum’s Peter Cracknell interviews Mr Jeff Souter, Statewide Advisory Visiting Teacher, Assistive Technologies from the QLD Department of Education about how schools can support students with reading difficulty; particularly addressing assessment adjustments and technology that is approved for use in the classroom. 

Jeff also presents findings from the Department of Education’s successful trial of the OrCam in 9 schools across QLD.  We also hear from SPELD QLD, who support struggling students directly in the classroom and with extra-curricular engagement.  Finally we see video clips of young people using portable reading devices like the OrCam READ - at TAFE, in the community, and at home.
