October is Dyslexia Awareness Month.
Dyslexia is a learning difference that creates challenges with writing, reading, and spelling. A growing body of tools is being developed to address the language challenges faced by the people who deal with dyslexia.
Round Rock Public Library has several supports for our readers who have dsylexia.
These supports include:
Tools to incorporate listening while reading
- Talking Books and Combo Packs: These materials include an audiobook alongside the matching printed book
- Playaway audiobooks: In general, the Library purchases Playaway audiobooks only if the Library also owns a copy of the printed book.
Tools to reformat eBooks
The Library’s two eBook vendors both include an option to use a dyslexic-friendly font.
Books that match interests to age rather than reading level
The Library has not pulled the High Interest, Low Vocabulary genre books into a single location. However, you can find these titles using the NoveList K-8 database.
