Free Accessible Textbooks for students with ASD, dyslexia, ADHD & Visual Impairments (31 Mar)

30 minutes

If any of your students have ASD, dyslexia, ADHD, partial sight or blindness then this short webinar is for you!

Print textbooks prevent many SEN learners from successfully accessing the curriculum. Imagine if you could offer your disabled learners access to electronic copies of their textbooks? And an app that lets them change the books' fonts, sizes, colours? Even better the app could read the book aloud to them? This webinar will show how you can do exactly all that - and it's all FREE to education!

Dolphin’s Steve Bennett will introduce and demonstrate the 2 parts of the reading puzzle. Firstly signing up to the RNIB's 'Education Collection' of more than 250,000 textbook in electronic formats - a free service for anyone in British schools, colleges & universities that are supporting print-disabled learners.

Secondly the free EasyReader app that empowers disabled students to download and read their textbooks in a way that suits their disability and their learning style. Large fonts. Dyslexia friendly font. Different font colours. Switch the background colour. Hear the book read aloud. Listen and read along, following the highlighted word.

This short webinar will answer the following questions:
• Which students can use RNIB Bookshare?
• What text books are available?
• Where do I get the free EasyReader app?
• How does EasyReader support my dyslexic students?
• How does EasyReader support my visually impaired learners?
