For Immediate Release:

November 28, 2018 - Princeton, NJ -- Learning Ally, a leading nonprofit education solutions organization providing high-quality, human-read audiobooks and a suite of educator resources, has received Honorable Mention in the 2018 Awards of Excellence, given by Technology & Learning, a leading ed tech publication and website.

For more than 30 years, Technology & Learning has sought out and highlighted the best in education technology. The Awards of Excellence are a recognized endorsement that a product or service meets the rigorous standards of the most innovative educators working in classrooms today.

“As the experts in reading accommodations for struggling readers with learning differences, we know all struggling learners can succeed with the right support,” says Andrew Friedman, CEO of Learning Ally. “By developing new and dynamic solutions for educators, we can and will support students and their teachers in deeper and more impactful ways. This recognition from Technology & Learning is truly a prestigious honor and it demonstrates the impact we continue to have on students’ lives.”

Human-read audiobooks are an essential and necessary accommodation that ensure all students receive equitable access to grade-level content, and in a way they learn best. With Learning Ally, students can lessen their focus on the mechanics of reading and spend more time absorbing and comprehending information. With continued use, struggling readers grow in self-belief, while increasing their academic achievement. Learning Ally’s audiobook solution is more than a reading accommodation; it seamlessly blends into the classroom, helps students remain on par with peers, and offers the educator support in the form of progress monitoring and student-engagement tools.

“To win a Technology & Learning Award of Excellence isn't just a badge of participation. It is an endorsement that a product or service meets the standards of the most innovative edtech educators working in classrooms today,” says Kevin Hogan, Managing Director of Content for T&L.
