The Learning Ally audiobook solution is an essential multi-sensory accommodation that bridges the gap between students' ability to decode and their ability to comprehend, so they can access grade-level content with their peers. Our human-read audiobooks help students reach their academic potential by allowing them to focus on comprehension, retention and critical thinking, rather than the mechanics of reading.
