Free Accessible Textbooks for Dyslexia, Autism and ADD

If you have identified ways that the students and pupils you support struggle to access the curriculum - and think that they might benefit from accessible textbooks - the RNIB Bookshare together with the Dolphin EasyReader app can help.

The Dolphin EasyReader app will help reduce difficulties which some pupils might experience when reading printed materials, whether this is caused by visual impairments or neuro diverse learning needs - and it works with the RNIB Bookshare Education Collection - a library that offers talking eBook editions of thousands of textbooks - for students of all ages. 

RNIB Bookshare Education Collection is a free education collection for students in the UK. It is provided free for eligible students by the RNIB and has real benefits for many learners. This is perfect for - but certainly not limited to - readers experiencing sight loss, with vision impairments, or blindness. Students can also use the library if they have a cognitive learning disability, such as:

  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
