Free Accessible Textbooks for Dyslexia, Autism and ADD

Do your learners struggle to access the curriculum? Would the students and pupils you support benefit from accessible textbooks? Do they struggle with reading print materials? Do you need talking eBook editions of textbooks?

RNIB Bookshare and the EasyReader app can help.

RNIB Bookshare is the RNIB's free UK education collection for print-disabled learners. You may not be aware, but this collection is not just for readers with a visual impairment, sight loss or blindness. Your students can also use it if they have a cognitive learning disability, such as:

  • Dyslexia
  • Autism
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
