Bookshare.org

Yes, it's been a few days since I posted, I hope this post will make up for it. A great website for all students with disabilities is Bookshare.org. This is a site dedicated to providing digital texts to all students with disabilities. Recently the site received a large grant to provide this service FREE!!! Read about it here.

The texts provided are digital and able to be read by most text readers. A free download of the Victor Reader which will work with these texts. Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (SCD) qualify under the Learning Disability section, or physical disability if they have a specific physical limitation that keeps them from accessing printed materials. You can sign up an individual or you can sign up by school or ogranization.

So head over to Bookshare.org and get started using digital text to help your child or student!
