Dyslexia support in libraries


Dyslexia is a learning difference that can affect the ability to read, write and spell.

East Sussex libraries are committed to providing support for:

  • parents and carers looking to aid the development of children with dyslexia
  • dyslexic parents and carers looking for books to share with small children
  • adults with dyslexia looking for ways to enjoy reading or develop their skills.

How we can help

We offer eBooks, eMagazines and eNewspapers which you may find easier to read if you have dyslexia.  We also have  eAudio books and books on CD if you prefer to listen.

You can find these useful resources in our libraries:

  • Books from dyslexia specialist Barrington Stoke for a range of ages.
  • Dyslexia friendly books - junior
  • Dyslexia friendly books - teens
  • Story CDs. Your child may enjoy just listening to a story.
  • eAudiobooks and ‘Read-Along’ eBooks if your child would like to follow the words on the pages as they listen.
  • Books for adults about dyslexia and other reading difficulties.
  • User friendly computer software in all libraries (Supernova) which enables users to change font size and colour.
  • ProDigi and Eye Pal Solo reading aids available in Bexhill, Hastings and Eastbourne libraries. These machines are for those who have difficulty with normal print. They have a text to speech function as well as tools to enlarge print and change font colour.
  • Quick reads for adults who struggle with reading for any reason or who are reluctant readers.
