  1. I am interested insecuring readings of college text books for my Learning Disabled daughter. Can you please advise me. Thank you.


    1. Hi Jill,

      You should connect with one of the agencies on the list in this blog post. You probably need to have a larger conversation about where your daughter can get an assessment and also, about funding for the tech tools–in addition to advice about what to purchase. The LightHouse specializes in adaptive tech for youth with visual impairments.
