A teacher has asked about how to find audio tapes or CDs of textbooks for students with reading disabilities. Where should we begin to look?

Start with the Reading for the Blind & Dyslexic website. This non-profit organization offers thousands of titles on CD for K-12 students, including textbooks. Audiobooks may be checked out for up to one year.

Membership is relatively inexpensive. Individual students with a documented print disability may purchase a subscription for $100 for the first year and $35 per year thereafter. Institutional memberships for school cover 4-40 students and range between $350 and $950 annually. You must also purchase either a special CD player (starting at $199), a user key for an existing CD player, or PC software.
