RFB&D: New Jersey Unit
New Jersey Unit of RFB&D’s Learning Through Listening
Educational Outreach Center
The New Jersey Unit of Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic’s (RFB&D) Learning Through Listening Educational Outreach Center serves students with visual, learning or other physical disabilities. The program provides assistance and information to individuals, schools and teachers throughout New Jersey about RFB&D’s services and how best to use it’s resources. An RFB&D membership provides access to the Learning Through Listening® Library of more than 98,000 titles. Additionally, RFB&D’s reference librarians can search the collections to tell members what titles are available in specific subject areas.
RFB&D offers two membership options: Individual Memberships are available to anyone who is unable to effectively read due to a vision impairment, physical disability or specific learning disability. The Institutional Membership program is designed to meet the growing demand of schools who need a convenient and flexible method of providing educational accommodations for their students with qualifying disabilities. Individual memberships are appropriate for students who can independently select and order their own books. Institutional Memberships are for schools that order books for multiple students. Institutional Membership and individual memberships work well when used together. For example, a school can use its Institutional Membership to order the standard curriculum for its students, while each student may have his or her own membership to borrow reading materials which supplement the curriculum.
