Children living with a disability

The Chicago Tribune recently published a summary of an online chat with experts about some of the resources available for parents raising children who have disabilities.  They mentioned lots of organizations that were new to me.  I added a few new links to our website’s page of Health & Safety resources for parents.

Perhaps because I had just been looking at those resources, the pages in our Summer Reading Program guide about the Illinois State Library Talking Book and Braille Service jumped out at me.  I hadn’t realized that they have a website called KidsZone aimed especially at children and teachers.

Children who cannot see or hold a print book, or who have a reading disability, can borrow Braille or Talking Books for free.  The website features reading lists, homework help, recommended websites, and an online catalog of books available through the service.
