Critical support needed to help students who are blind, visually impaired, or have a reading disability

As schools close and education becomes completely virtual, Learning Ally is providing our Audiobook Solution, consisting of human-read audiobooks and educator resources FREE of charge to schools and students in need through August 1st. Don’t let these students fall through the cracks in this distance learning environment. Learning Ally is an essential resource for these students to access curriculum to keep up with their education.

We urgently need your help to reach an additional 500,000 students in need. Students who are blind, visually impaired or have a reading disability need your assistance now more than ever! Your contributions will make an immediate impact during this difficult time.
