Nick’s story: learning with Turning Pages Digital

April 30, 2024

Before starting with Turning Pages Digital, I did everything by pictures and words were alien. I could not break them down. Everyone read for me if it was official or not official.


I was a bit lazy but I was also scared of reading and could not understand bigger words or how to break them down. I wanted to be able to read my own letters and pick up and read forms.


Before I had my first session, I was afraid of what I was going to be asked to do. I had a fear of education and did not know what the mentor would be like. After the first session, it felt a lot easier.


Since starting the programme, I can read my own letters. I can read information myself and don’t need someone to read for me. I feel good about it. I didn’t realise how much difference it made. I read everything from all the road signs as I am driving. I take in the information. I read without thinking about it.


It just helps with everyday life. Being able to pick anything up and just read it. It gives me privacy to read my own things. It gives me more control. I can now use a satnav with confidence.


My reading coach is easy to get on with and she makes me feel comfortable. It is like working with a mate and coming in to see a friend.


This programme is absolutely brilliant. It has been the best thing ever. I never felt I wanted it to be over and now it is finished I feel really good about myself.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragra

phs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin

editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, bloc

kquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
