Find books for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We understand that all children have different abilities, and some pupils may struggle with reading and need more specialised texts. We can also supply books in Braille for blind and visually impaired pupils.
Dyslexia-friendly and Hi-Lo (or high/low) books are books which contain engaging age-appropriate subject matter at a low reading level for struggling readers. The content is appropriate to the age of the readers, but the text has been edited to suit a lower reading age. Hi-Lo books can help build reading fluency, vocabulary, background knowledge and interest in reading. They provide support for the student, including illustrations to support the text, carefully chosen vocabulary, background knowledge and interest in reading.
If you need help choosing, our SEN book packs for Key Stages 1 and 2 are ideal for stocking up on titles suitable for your SEN pupils. The Quick reads (reluctant readers) packs for Key Stage 2 are aimed at those readers who are perfectly able but difficult to motivate to pick up a book. These packs contain a mixture of short fiction and non-fiction texts that should appeal to their interests.
