Digital Literacy for Kids with LD

The American Library Association defines digital literacy as “the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information, requiring both cognitive and technical skills.” Today’s students have come of age in an era of digital media. Yet proficiency with YouTube and Facebook does not necessarily mean that your child is digitally literate—that he has the technological skills to meet the digital demands required to succeed in school and life. Many assistive technologies exist to help kids with Learning Disabilities (LD), and being digitally literate ensures that they can use these technologies to meet their needs.
