Quote from member. Text reads: "I support a child who has an identification of Dyslexia and have recently introduced him to Listening Books.  We are already seeing a huge improvement in his engagement with texts, because he can listen to and participate in class discussions with his peer group." Teacher at Kirkcaldy West Primary School


Comments from our younger members and parents:

Quote from member. Text reads: "My dyslexic son always struggled with his schoolwork until he started listening to Harry Potter with Listening Books. Initially he was reluctant, but the books grew on him until he was reading ahead independently. This was a turning point for him, and his schoolwork improved significantly. He passed most of his GCSEs, gained 3 A Levels and now has a BSc degree. He is still an avid reader. The efforts of your charity have played a part in helping my son turn his life around. Thank you." 

Quote from Member. Text reads: "Audiobooks are very useful to me on the days I don't have enough energy to pick up a book and read. Being in hospital has been very draining so this would be useful during future visits to help me keep up with my English Literature A Level.   It's also nice to fill in time when I'm bored but too exhausted to do anything."  Anon, Child at UCH

Comments from our hospice members:

Quote from member. Text reads: "I would like to thank all the staff at Listening Books for the access to your huge audiobook Library. This very welcome gift is yet another way that our patients can get some level of normality into their lives at what is a very stressful and worrying time for them. This fantastic enhancement will hopefully bring those that want to take advantage of it many hours of listening and relaxing." Stevan, CEO at Mary Stevens Hospice 

Quote from member. Text reads: "The tablets are brilliant! We have been loaning one to a family who does not have access to the internet and we have been able to regularly upload new stories on for the teenager and her whole family to listen to together. This has been such a positive influence for the whole family and has been an additional way that the family can make memories together.    Also, we are going to be loaning another tablet to a young girl who is blind. She already loves listening to audiobooks but this will open up the vast amount of storytellers that she can access.  Thank you again for all the support of the tablet. They are such a valuable resource."  Toni Goodall, Family Support Worker Demelza Children's Hospice
