FREE audio books for people with print disabilities

How people with print disabilities can get my books and many others for FREE

Wow, what an honor! The organization Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic (RFB&D) has recorded both my books (For the Children and The Power of Dyslexic Thinking) for its audio library.

Having my books available through RFB&D brings my struggle with a print disability full circle. In the 1970s, this organization began to serve an increasing number of people who had learning disabilities, and I was one of them. I received my textbooks in audio format as part of my Individual Education Plan in school.

Now, my books will be available to people just like me through RFB&D. The old Hair Club for Men commercial comes to mind: "I'm not only the president, but I'm also a client." I am not only an author, but I'm also a client!

You can imagine my delight when I received an email saying my books had been approved for recording. I was doubly delighted when I was asked to record an introduction for each book. RFB&D has recording studios around the country utilizing a volunteer force of more than 5, 000 people who donate over 332, 000 hours annually to recording books. I was invited to the studio in Charlottesville, Virginia, for my recording session.

About a month after my invitation to record the introductions, my speaking schedule landed me within 60 miles of Charlottesville. I emailed Mary Ann, my contact at the studio, and asked if we could schedule my recording session for March 9 at 4:30 p.m., and she agreed. In preparation for the session, I called her on the hour drive to the studio and asked her what she wanted to accomplish during the session.

Mary Ann replied that she just wanted me to read the introductions to my books. With that, my heart jumped into my throat. It's true that I am the author of the material, but a ghostwriter wrote the books, and I read on a fifth-grade level! I then found myself having a slight out-of-body experience. I heard myself replying, "Oh! I can't do that. I can't read."
