Hello humans of the internet. I was reading over some old blog posts and realized is been a really long time since I did a tricks and copes post. This was something that I had originally planned to post once a month. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep that up simply because I don’t discover these that frequently.
Tricks and Copes #4: audio books
This is one that most people with dyslexia heat about at a very young age. However, because I was not identified until I was 15, I missed out on a lot of things that would have benefited my education. I had heard of audio books before, of course. My grandmother listened to them when she was driving. I just believed that they only had historical romance novels and the bible as audio books.
It wasn’t until a sleepless night early I my college career that I discovered audio books on the school library’s website. It opened up a whole world for me. Audio books made reading plays so much easier for me to understand. I mean, it made everything easier, but as I was a theater major, I read a lot of plays.
I’ve been told that most people who are identified early, are told to use audio books. Thoes people are very lucky. I did wonder if anyone ergo doesn’t have trouble reading enjoys audio books. It’s always a little disappointing that it’s more expensive then a regular book. I do understand why. All the people working on it deserve to be paid fairly for their work.
Have a wonderful weekend! Much love AK!
