Digital Library Available for Children with Disabilities

Below is an excerpt from an email I received recently. It sounds like a wonderful resource that many of your children could benefit from.

"Bookshare is the world’s largest accessible digital library for persons with print and learning disabilities (such as dyslexia). Students with qualifying disabilities get FREE access to over 43,000 digital books, textbooks and teacher recommended reading, as well as assistive reading technology to help them read and study independently. Membership for students and schools is free thanks to an award from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education (OSEP). Parents and teachers can sign up their children by going to registration."

  1. While this a wonderful tool for dyslexics, is not really free. You must purchase the software to play the book. The Mac software for an individual costs $299.00.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I love comments and feedback!
