We stock physical books from the dyslexia-specialist publisher, Barrington Stoke. These books are dyslexia-friendly by having the following features:
- Text printed on cream paper with a matt surface to mitigate the effect of glare from white paper.
- Thick paper, since dyslexics experience reading problems when print from overleaf show through on the reading page.
- Specially-created type face designed to minimise visual stress by using slightly longer ascenders and descenders on letters.
- A wider gap between each line of text, clear punctuation and a more defined gap between paragraphs.
Our eBook services allow you to change both page colour and font size to create a bespoke visual experience for your child. Learn more about our e-services.
We also stock physical and online audio books free of charge. Your child may enjoy just listening to the story, or want to read the print version at the same time.
We also stock books for adults about dyslexia and other learning difficulties.
