For students with dyslexia and other reading deficits that cause them to read below grade level, leveled readers may not be enough. While they help students learn to read, if used exclusively, they also limit students’ opportunities to acquire grade-level content. As a result, they often fall behind, become disengaged and lose interest in learning. Barbara Wilson explains how the Learning Ally Audiobook Solution bridges the reading gap by providing equitable access to grade-level content in a format students can easily absorb.
