PROBLEMS TARGETED

Reading is an imported and proved to be worth activity and especially for children very worth to support. But for children with different disabilities reading is very difficult or impossible.

PROJECT

Biblio-connection facilitates the access to written stories and books with audio programs, sign language, pictures and so on. Children and Youths with different disabilities become able to read independently. There are different ways of reliefs and everybody can choose the best one for him- or herself, but it is also very useful for children and Youths without disabilities.

CURRENT SITUATION & OUTLOOK

Further aims of the project are to increase the motivation to read, to develop more ways of reading or perceive and to bring disabled and healthy children in contact by reading together.
