Because it is so fast, you can create instant lessons or books with students sitting right there. Tie in topics that students are learning to build background knowledge. Easily include students' own drawings, their own experiences, voices or photos of familiar people and surroundings taken with a digital camera.

Story text is automatically read aloud and highlighted, helping students attend to words. BuildAbility books can be adapted versions of what the general class is reading, “how-to” books for daily tasks or about any topic.
