NEWS FROM BOOKS ALOUD
As a Special Needs Teacher you are qualified to receive FREE services from Books Aloud as follows:
Sight and Sound
Printed and audio books are combined in a “kit” and lent together, allowing a sighted reader with a learning impairment to follow along while listening. Our selection covers early childhood through adult.
You may establish a classroom library with 2 track tape players, headsets and 10 to 40 audio books and sight and sound kits. Materials are updated monthly as requested by you. And in 2013 we have a pilot program of providing audio books on the Nook Tablet along with the printed book.
Just fill out the application; mark the top with “Mini-Library” and return to us. We will be happy to provide you with this incredible resource for your students.
