Computer Program Helps Teach Reading By Seizing Attention Of Students.

NPR /StateImpact (3/9, O'Connor) reports on the reading program at Florida's Audubon Park Elementary School, called Letters Alive, which makes use of flash cards and "a special camera" connected to a computer that offers an "interactive" experience with "moving, screeching animals" at a cost of "$1,000 for a year-long curriculum." The program is said to be successful with students with autism because "teachers say the animal actions, colors and sounds are riveting," and provoke "the best response from their toughest students."
