Check out Tarheelreader
Computer science professor Gary Bishop is motivated by the 15-year-old students with cerebral palsy and debilitating motor impairment who can’t talk or use their hands.

It’s those students, who are constantly dealing with people assuming they can’t understand the simplest of tasks, that inspired Bishop, the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies and the Department of Computer Science to develop the Tar Heel Reader.

Tarheelreader.org provides reading material beyond the picture books of 3- or 4-year-olds for teens with developmental disabilities who are just learning to read.
