Did you know that in the U.S. an estimated 2% of all students have a print disability? And that by third and fourth grade*, students who are behind in reading, have a greater chance of falling behind in all their subjects? You can help to reverse this trend by sharing this awesome video, Possibilities Abound with Bookshare, created by students at Cogswell Polytechnical College. Imagine the realm of possibilities for more individuals with qualifying print disabilities in school and beyond.
Watch the animated video now to learn:
- What is a print disability.
- How it affects a person’s ability and desire to read.
- The importance of making the transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
