Education Equity

Every day, we partner with schools and communities to break down systemic barriers and raise up students with learning differences and disabilities. We are committed to education equity so that learners of any age, ability, and zip code can thrive and succeed.

“The positive impact of Bookshare for students with disabilities cannot be overstated. It can be the difference between success and failure.” -Kathy S, parent of Bookshare member

We believe that every student can succeed in school when given the right accommodations and support. At Benetech, we have seen firsthand, how students with dyslexia, vision loss, cerebral palsy, and other reading barriers light up when given the opportunity to read in alternative formats. See our work in the United States and globally to empower students to read their way.

"When I was 7, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and started using Bookshare. I wouldn’t be an avid reader without it." -Emery L., student, Texas

Training Resources

Benetech cares deeply about educational equity. One way to influence that is to provide teachers with high quality training that is practical and action oriented. This provides support to students through teachers who are striving to provide appropriate and effective accommodations to their students to help them reach their goals. Another way to influence this is to provide professional development to librarians and other community organizations that are an avenue to information to the public.
