Online learning can present challenges for children with special needs like dyslexia. When classrooms are closed, students with learning differences can be left without the help they need to succeed.

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

Children with special needs can continue to learn and grow when school is closed. It may take a little time and a few adjustments, but there are resources that can make online learning for kids easier.

Introducing Bookshare.

Bookshare is a FREE online library with over 800,000 books, including textbooks and classroom resources for students with dyslexia, blindness, low vision, cerebral palsy, and other reading barriers. Students can read books on virtually any device and customize their reading experience in ways that work for them.

With Bookshare, kids can:

  • Listen to books in audio (and customize voices and reading speed)
  • Follow along with text and karaoke-style highlighting
  • Enlarge font sizes, change font type, color, background, and highlighting
  • Read in braille

Bookshare is FREE for qualifying students with reading barriers.

Bookshare has helped hundreds of thousands of students make reading easier.
