Dyspraxia and RNIB Bookshare

Under the terms of the Copyright and Rights in Performances (Disability) Regulations 2014 , Dyspraxia is defined as a print disability. This means that a learner with Dyspraxia is entitled to use RNIB Bookshare to access the curriculum and leisure titles they want to read.

As a Dyspraxic learner you may find it easier to use our accessible electronic files of titles you need on a tablet or other elctronic device. You can then listen to, or change how you view the text in terms of font colour and style and background. You could also modify the title to print out and read, whatever works best for you.

If you need any help in using the titles, please just get in contact with us.
