More about NTC.
NTC members have a professional or personal interest in how people with dyslexia can use technology to help them develop strategies for coping with using literacy at school, college, work or everyday living.
The expertise of the members of the committee includes dyslexics, teachers, I.T. professionals and parents.
We look at new developments in hardware and software and attempt to evaluate how useful they are in helping dyslexic people to work more independently.
