The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) provides students with disabilities access to explore learning and assistive technologies to aid in the learning process as they pursue their programs of study. CSD’s goal is to increase student engagement in and out of the classroom by providing them with tools to actively participate in a dynamic learning community. The focus of these technologies is to enhance students overall success and independence with studying and learning. One software, Read & Write, in particular has become very popular among our student population. Read & Write is a customizable toolbar that integrates reading, writing, studying, and research support tools! This tool can also assist in creating documents that are accessible for students using screen readers. In this seminar, we will discuss, demonstrate, and encourage faculty to try out Read & Write on their personal laptops!
