Books for all report

On Tuesday the Scottish Executive posted a report titled Books for All: Accessible curriculum materials for pupils with additional support needs to its website.

The report is the outcome of a project funded by Scottish Executive Education Department and carried out by the Communication Aids for Language and Learning
(CALL Centre) at the University of Edinburgh. It considers:

  • The numbers of pupils with literacy support needs in Scotland.

  • What learning materials are required in alternative formats.

  • Which alternative formats would benefit pupils with literacy difficulties.

  • What benefits are achieved by having learning materials in alternative formats.

  • Issues of equity and provisions under copyright exemption legislation.

  • how accessible materials might be made more widely available.

  • the duties of responsible bodies such as local authorities

  • and what steps should be taken to address these issues.


The report will also be available
from CALL’s Books for All web site at
