Audiobooks have become significantly more commonplace for students with and without disabilities. Using an audiobook can significantly enhance comprehension, aid in fluency/speed, increase motivation and confidence, and help students connect words they hear every day to the printed word. When a student's reading level is below their grade level, audiobooks can "level the playing field", allowing a student to listen to grade-level content and keep pace with their peers. It is important to keep your child reading books at their reading level, even when they use audiobooks. The audiobook keeps them moving forward in their class content, but repeated reading practice and instruction continues to be essential.
