Use of technology to facilitate language skills in school-age children
Technology offers numerous possibilities for facilitating language and literacy skills in school-age children and adolescents. Narrative skills can be addressed by the use of specialized programs as well as generic word processing software. Writing skills can be targeted due to the variety of possibilities for input as well as options for supporting spelling and syntax. Reading skills might be improved by the use of programs that focus on decoding, as well as hypertext tools that highlight the use of text patterns or signals.
