Did you trial the Exam Reader / Reader initially, if so, what “review process” did you follow and what conclusions did you draw? 

Did not trial, purchased Reader Pen

What do you most like about the Reader Pen?

Its ability to read multiple sources (books, maps, globes)

Please describe how the use of the Reader Pen has affected your students (performance, confidence, independence etc)? 

I honestly can’t find the words to describe the impact it had on one of my students. This child was able to take a test and feel independent for the first time in his life.

Please describe any other areas in school you feel the  Reader Pen has helped (staff time savings, school results, cost savings etc)

Haven’t heard of many other schools using it in my area.

How likely are you to recommend the Reader Pen to others?

I highly recommend it and do when the opportunity arises.
