Anyone interested in what we have to offer in our lab can go to

http://www.unt.edu/ACSGAL/

Our equipment and software is pretty much up to date; I am breaking in a
new
tech so I don't think he has been able to check everything yet!

We do not have alot of software yet for dyslexia; it is a relatively new
area to
us but as more students get diagnosed, we get more of a call for it. We
currently
have a Kurzweil 1000 (which as you probably know - in addition to its
powerful scanning tools for the blind - also offers special reading
accommodations for those
with dyslexia). We are going to probably be buying a Kurzweil 3000 next
which has
very powerful tools for those with dyslexia and reading disabilities.

It is a very interesting area which I kind of 'fell into.' If you are
ever interested in how to design a studio properly for persons with
disabilities, my old teacher Scott Wyatt , at the U of Illinois has
designed studios in this way and has written some fabulous papers on the
topic. I used his research and writings when designing our lab.
