Meath County Council are delighted to announce our dyslexia-friendly book gifting initiative for primary schools. On launching this initiative, Cathaoirleach Cllr. Nick Killian said that “we want to support reading for pleasure in schools and hope this gift will make classrooms and schools libraries even more accessible and dyslexia friendly.

Meath County Council Chief Executive Jackie Maguire praised the initiative that “will help break down the barriers that can stop children getting into reading”. These dyslexia-friendly short reads by popular authors have more accessible layouts, dyslexia-friendly fonts, and off-white pages to help make reading easier for children. Their books are hi low (high interest, low ability) so the content is age-appropriate, but the text is carefully edited to suit a lower reading age.
