SORRY THIS PROJECT IS TEMPORARILY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Thank you for visiting the ACCESS2BOOKS website.  Unfortunately, we have put this community interest project on hold due to lack of funding.  If you want to communicate with this project or have ideas for additional funding then use the form below.

ABOUT THE ACCESS2BOOKS PROJECT

This Community Interest Project produces high quality early years’ books in giant print (75pt), braille and illustrations. The design enables braille or large print readers to read without obscuring the text or illustrations; and therefore gives children and adults the opportunity to read together, forming both educational and social relationships - the biggest contributing factor to children's early years' learning of language, confidence and social interaction.

The most likely users of this format are adults or children with macular conditions, maybe cataracts and other sight conditions that affect the macular and therefore reading. Another group is people with learning disabilities who require giant print and illustrations to support their reading. The design will also assist people with conditions that affect co-ordination and dexterity.

A SAMPLE BOOK
