Reading over the summer helps all kids avoid the dreaded “summer slide,” but for students with print disabilities, reading is even more important. We recently surveyed Learning Ally’s educators, and they agree that ear-reading human-narrated audiobooks help:
- 77% of students to improve their vocabulary skills
- 83% of students to comprehend grade-level texts
- 92% of struggling readers to become more independent
We want to help motivate students to read more this summer with our Summer Reading Together challenge! It’s a program designed specifically for kids with print disabilities like dyslexia or visual impairment. It’s free to sign up for Learning Ally members, and students compete to win cool prizes including four pairs of BEATS headphones!
Need some reading ideas? Check out our featured book recommendations which are broken down by grade level. You can see them here.
We’ll also be hosting a fun social media challenge for summer reading during the month of July for another chance to win prizes. Don’t miss it!
