Notebooks

The pre-reader and school-age notebooks have been designed with larger font, less text and more white space than in previous years, making them more accessible for participants of varying abilities. There will no longer be a separate accessible notebook sent to libraries. 

The notebooks will be produced in a variety of other accessible formats: audio, braille, accessible PDF and OpenDyslexic font. These will be available for download on the accessibility page of the TDSRC kids’ website and the plan for accessibility page of the staff website.
