Accessible book collection offers classic literature to special education classrooms

Don Johnston Incorporated has released a new package of Start-to-Finish accessible computer books and teaching materials for special education classrooms. The collection includes ten computer “chapter” books on CD—one for each month of the school year.

The books are designed to provide an engaging visual and audio reading experience for students who read below grade level due to learning or reading disabilities, such as dyslexia, autism, traumatic brain injury or for those with physical challenges that impair their ability to hold a book.

The ‘retold’ classic chapter books are written and edited by speech and language pathologists and are professionally narrated. The collection includes Romeo & Juliet, Treasure Island, Black Beauty, Frankenstein, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Red Badge of Courage and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

The collection is priced at $399 for an unlimited software license including take-home privileges for reading at school as well as at home.
