You'll also find great resources for implementing IEPs and creating an inclusive classroom.The purpose of this letter is to inform school districts and open-enrollment charter schools of a new online tool available to assist Texas teachers of all grades and courses in integrating technology to accommodate students with dyslexia.In accordance with Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.0031, added by Senate Bill 866 (82 Texas Legislature), the Texas Education Agency (TEA) established a committee to develop a plan for integrating technology into the classroom to help accommodate students with dyslexia.Second, it is likely that the students themselves will need to utilize and control the technology, as much or more than the instructor.Information Technology Services supports 101 of the 131 general purpose classrooms & lecture halls on UNL's City and East campuses.
