It always seems like technology and advancing a mile a minute. A lot of technological developments have been made in fields like entertainment, home security, transportation and even learning, but did you know that you can even get phonics learning apps for things like your smartphone and iPad? It’s true and they cover a wide range features including text-to-voice and even reading comprehension, but do they really help?
In a word, yes, and not just for people who are having trouble reading or understanding certain words, but for people who suffer from all forms of communication troubles. Those suffering from autism are able to use these programs to understand facial and emotional cues and communicate and convey their needs and wants accurately – all while avoiding all the frustration and confusion they might have had to deal with in the past. And those who might be having a little trouble with their reading and pronunciations can finally get the clarification they need.
And, of course, as technology continues to advance so too do the programs geared toward helping people with their phonics. It’s just another way technology is helping us give people the chances and the opportunities necessary to succeed in this fast paced world.
