While the technological challenges of speech recognition (SR) have been overcome in the last ten years through the power of cloud computing, the pedagogical challenge of teaching K-12 students to use SR for writing has not been adequately addressed. A scaffolded teaching approach is needed. This intensive course unpacks SR through the lens of the AT process. Our motto is “You don’t know until you try it!” Consideration leads directly to 8 scaffolded steps for teaching SR to children. Assessment strategies are  embedded in each teaching step to document effectiveness. Implementation and progress monitoring strategies round out the AT process.
