Putting California Dyslexia Guidelines Into Action

Categories: Audiobook Library, In the News

Learning Ally’s human-narrated audiobooks have just been listed in the new California Dyslexia Guidelines (CDG) as a recommended reading accommodation by the California DOE. The CDG is the latest addition to the library of state education authored resources for educators who suspect or identify students with a learning disability. The Guidelines offer direct, explicit, and systematic reading instruction, as well as clear and useful direction on the need for, and uses of, accessible educational materials, including audiobooks.

This distinction is an honor we accept gladly to support California educators as they plan to identify struggling readers with dyslexia and provide reading accommodations to transform their reading experience. To assist California educators in this effort, Learning Ally is hosting this webinar and hope you will join us. Register Now!
