The Scottish Executive has published a report relating to accessible curriculum materials for pupils with additional support needs
The Books for All project investigated the need for and availability of learning resources in accessible forms for pupils in Scotland who have print disabilities
The project found that availability of books and other resources in Braille, Large Print and audio formats, for the relatively small number of blind and partially-sighted pupils, while not complete, was good, in comparison to the availability of accessible books for the much larger number of pupils with physical disabilities, specific learning difficulties, learning difficulties, or hearing impairment. These pupils may require, for example, adapted printed materials, digital versions that can be accessed by switch or read out by a computer, audio recordings, or signed multimedia resources.
