Teachers with the District’s Dyslexia Program were recently trained to use new assistive technology devices which where graciously donated by Care Innovations, an Intel GE Company from Northern California. The donated items included 15 Intel Readers and 10 portable Capture Stations. These items will be used to help students with Dyslexia or hearing impairments. Pictured is Col. Santos Benavides Elementary teacher Elizabeth Guevara and Care Innovations Market Development Manager Lou Meier. Meier explained that he asked for the items donated to children in Laredo since he attended and graduated from high school here when his family was stationed at the former air force base. Meier is also Dyslexic and knows these devices will help students gain more confidence and independence with the printed word. The teachers will be utilizing this much needed equipment in the new upcoming school year which begins August 27, 2012.
