Reader Services

Many students with disabilities qualify to receive assistance with reading their course textbooks and materials. It is the responsibility of the student to seek out the support services, which will help them to obtain such assistance. The DSPS office can facilitate reading opportunities through the following methods:

  • Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D) is a national service for students with a wide variety of disabilities (not just blind). Membership information for RFB&D is available from the DSPS Counselor.
  • Electronic Text (AB 422) provides that publishers furnish to qualified disabled students text in an electronic format. If unavailable from the publisher, books may be produced locally with a high-speed scanner. More information is available from the DSPS Counselor.
