All individuals have the right to access print materials in order to learn, increase vocational success,
and improve overall quality of life.  Positive reading and learning experiences result when networked technology
or specialized software is used to adapt books and create literacy support materials
for a wide variety of learners.
Remember that you must own a copy of any book you adapt for your students.
