“Talking Books for people with dyslexia” talk, 7.30pm Tuesday 5 February at East Croydon United Reformed Church, Addiscombe Road

EAst Croydon UNited Reformed Church

For many people with dyslexia, books can be daunting.  As a processing disorder, dyslexia doesn’t affect intelligence, but the effort involved in decoding words means that books can become too complex to properly enjoy.  Audiobooks could provide the answer.

Listening Books is a charity which provides an audiobook library for people who find reading difficult as the result of a print impairment like dyslexia. It has over 7,000 titles in its library, including bestselling titles from authors including J. K. Rowling, George R. R. Martin, Lee Child, David Walliams, Jacqueline Wilson, and many more. Listening Books supports the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 to A-Level and has a huge range of fiction and non-fiction titles for both adults and children.

During the talk the two speakers, Abbie and Claire from Listening Books, will show how easy it is to borrow audiobooks online, and how the postal CD service works. They will also bring information about free memberships in Croydon!
