Traditionally IEPA members have facilitated requests for modified copies of textbooks for school children with disabilities. In April 2016 it was agreed a centralised IEPA Special Needs Policy should be formally adopted as follows:
The request must be submitted by a parent, or teacher, of the named student, accompanied by acceptable proof of medical condition. Files, in pdf, text files or eBook access are then provided to the student in question.
The publisher will make every effort to accommodate the request but cannot guarantee the availability of a particular title, or a title in a specific format. The format of the title remains at the discretion of the publisher.
