CNIB: Accessible Literacy for People with a Print Disability
posted on November 17, 2017
The Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) has long been creating accessible options for people who are blind or partially sighted. Now they are branching out; by helping anyone with a print disability.
You might be thinking ‘only blind and partially sighted people have print disabilities’ & that would be only part of the truth.
As it turns out;
“A print disability is any learning disability (impairment relating to comprehension), physical disability (inability to hold/manipulate a book), or visual (severe or total impairment of sight) disability that prevents a person from reading conventional print”(Canadian National Institute for the Blind, 2015, para. 6).
CNIB Literacy Programs
Combined with CELA, the Centre for Equitable Library Access, the CNIB is dedicated to making essential literacy skills available to people of all abilities in an effort to:
- Improve Educational Skills, and in turn
- Improve Employment Opportunities.
