Audiobooks while learning to read?

“Is it good for my dyslexic daughter to use audiobooks when she’s learning to read?”

The answer is yes! Be sure to always have readers follow along in the text as they listen to audiobooks, though. While accommodating with audiobooks, continue to use multi-sensory, language-based interventions to address the underlying challenges related to dyslexia. Also, remember that many students with dyslexia are very creative and have spatial awareness and “big picture thinking” strengths that can be better utilized to make learning easier.
