One of the principles of intellectual freedom is access to information and learning resources to all students and this includes students with print disabilities. Having print disability means “A person …….. cannot effectively access traditional print resources because of a visual impairment, a physical disability, or a severe learning disability that affects reading” (Bookshare Possibilities). It is estimated that two percent of American students in the U.S. have print disability that may prevent them from reaching their full learning potential (Bookshare Possibilities).
