The Maine Starter Program (March 30, 2011 at 3:15pm)

March 28th, 2011

Students in your school who have difficulty reading print materials may qualify for a program being offered to Maine schools by Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D). RFB&D is a national organization that serves people with learning disabilities and visual impairments by providing audiobooks, including textbooks and literature titles. RFB&D is offering a one-year program at no cost to Maine. In an effort to increase awareness of RFB&D programs and materials for K-12 students who have print disabilities, Maine will receive 100 audiobooks and 25 ReadHear Mac Software licenses good for one year. RFB&D also developed a full access web page for Maine schools and will offer 5 webinar-based trainings during 2011 and 2012.

On March 30, 2011 at 3:15 PM, Jenn Dougherty and Jayme Cagliuso will be facilitating a webinar to introduce the program, explain to use the web site and how students with print disabilities in your school can benefit from RFB&D’s audiobooks with playback equipment and software programs, including iPad/iPod Touch and iPhone applications.

Please join Jenn Dougherty and Jayme Cagliuso (from Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic) on March 30, at 3:15.

    I would like to watch this webinar. However, I will not be able to watch it on the 30th. I was told that I could watch it on the archive.
