  • If the student needs assignments read out loud to them they will need to go and download the Read and Write App onto their computer or phone. They have to be using Chrome 

    Steps to get Read and Write: 

    1. Go to search bar and type in Chrome Web Store 2. Click the first link 3. Go to the search bar on the left side and type in “Read and Write” 4. It will be a purple icon, click add to chrome 5. They will then see a little purple icon that looks like a puzzle piece in the top right corner 

    of their computer screen. 6. When they need something read to them, they will click the icon and then click the play 

    icon for it to read the assignment to them.
