The Picture Dictionary Tool and Supporting Teachers in Section Programs

Read and Write Gold Version 10:
The Picture Dictionary Tool and Supporting Teachers in Section Programs

            The Read and Write Gold Picture Dictionary Tool is one of the newest and most exciting features of Read and Write Gold Version 10 – particularly for students and teachers within low-incidence and ASD populations.

Recently, the assistive technology team hosted a professional development session introducing the Picture Dictionary to teachers currently teaching within Section Programs. At this session, teachers were provided with the opportunity to explore sample lessons/activities using the picture tool with both Microsoft Word and on their Interactive Whiteboards using ActivInspire. This hands-on session also included valuable planning time for teachers to explore and create meaningful visual supports that could be effectively implemented within their diverse program settings.
