Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic has received $5,000 from the Food Lion Charitable Foundation. RFB&D will use the gift to record five textbooks for North Carolina students who have print disabilities.
“We are appreciative of the Food Lion Charitable Foundation’s support of this project. By adopting the recording of five middle school science books, students with visual impairments, dyslexia and other learning disabilities will have the opportunity to achieve educational equity,” said Lynn Toms, RFB&D Acting North Carolina State board chair.
Recording textbooks in an accessible format is how RFB&D helps students take control of their education and future. Their mission is to create opportunities for individual success by providing and promoting the effective use of accessible, educational materials. Their vision is for all people to have access to the printed word.
