Student Resources and Supports

Read and Write Gold, an assistive technology program designed to provide literacy support for students of all ages and abilities, is now available for our entire TDSB community at no cost! In addition, students will be able to have access to Read and Write V.9 at home on their PC computers.

The software helps people who require extra assistance when reading or composing text, allowing students to develop their literacy skills and enjoy greater independence. Features include:

  • Speech feedback in a document or on the web
  • Talking dictionaries
  • Word prediction
  • Audio file creation

The documents in the link below will describe how to install a version of this software on your computer at home. We are not allowed to show the password on a website but it is displayed on the APA bulletin board outside of the Allenby Main Office and also on the door of the Allenby Library.
