Sound Learning - Audiobooks for Education

The pilot project involved 25 secondary schools in London and 100 individual members across the country. The results confirmed how important it is for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to have access to the same texts their peers are reading. These resounding results allowed Listening Books to develop and extend its service to schools, and to offer audiobooks that support the National Curriculum and literacy.

It is recognised that around 10% of the population have mild to severe difficulties with reading the written word. The three year pilot phase of Sound Learning showed pupils gained significant benefits from the use of alternative formats such as audiobooks. Incorporating audiobooks into your school offers opportunities for inclusive practice for children with SEND, by removing barriers to achievement, ensuring all children can access the curriculum and achieve literacy objectives. 

Other benefits include improving pupils confidence, increasing engagement, and creating a space for pupils who have emotional, social or behavioural difficulties such as ADHD to block out the sounds around them and focus on one specific task.
