Bookshare and Read & Write for Students with IEPs or a 504 Plan
Any students with 504 or IEPs can access all of their materials in ebook, audiobook, or large print form. Bookshare has an immense collection that includes most textbooks and thousands of free fiction and non-fiction reading materials.
Any teachers or counselors that want to set a student up with Bookshare just needs to let me know who the student is, whether they are on a 504 or an IEP plan, and what their disability is. I can set up an account for the student and assign specific textbooks or reading books or even an entire reading list based on a students' interests (ex. sports books, graphic novels, reluctant reader books, etc...) in about 5 minutes. After setting up an account for the student, I can then share their login credentials with them as well as my tutorials for how to get started accessing their books.
You can email me the student's information, or you can fill out the Bookshare Enrollment Google form for your student(s).
Students with IEPs also have access to the Premium edition of the Read & Write App through the District's site license. I have tutorials for them on how to use the app, and I can also Zoom with them to show them how to use the app in real time if they need any extra help getting started.
Here is the link to my Bookshare and Read & Write App tutorials on my website. Just scroll down to the resource you are interested in.
If your students are having problems with their CBs, have them go to this link for help! Students will fill out a Google Form and pick a day to come to the Library and turn in their CBs. They will be given loaners to use until their CBs are repaired.
