Where can I get help with Premier Literacy?

Premier Literacy has developed a series of training videos to show how to use each product. Each video is 5 to 10 minutes in length and can be played from Premier's website or through the HELP menu of each product.

Also on Premier's website is a set of Parent and Teacher resources that can aid in determining which tool is best suited for individuals.

A set of tip Sheets for the Windows version of the Premier Literacy Suite was developed by Pat Hammond of the London District Catholic School Board and is published here with our thanks.  Please click on the title of each product to download the tip sheet.

How can I access the Premier Literacy Suite for my child(ren) to use at home?

Parents who are interested in having this assistive technology available for their child(ren) to use at home can obtain a username and password from their neighborhood school and then go to www.premierathome.com to download and install as many products as needed. The only limitation is that these programs can only be installed on Windows computers owned by the student or parents of the student.

Mac downloads are not available on the AT Home site but as part of Premier Literacy's commitment to universal design for learning, the Literacy Productivity Mac Pack is available to AT Home participants at the greatly reduced price of $49.95 and can be ordered through the website above.
