Introducing our New Range of SEN Education Products

Education should never be a one-size-fits-all journey, and we’re proud to play our part in creating a learning environment where everyone can shine.

Since the launch of our first Education Catalogue in 2022, we have been working tirelessly to evolve our offerings. We have listened to your feedback and have recently added over 180 new products to our education range and partnered with an extensive list of new suppliers, such as LapCaddy and REY Paper, in collaboration with National Literacy Trust.

We are especially excited to introduce our new range of SEN products for this May.  In today’s educational landscape, diversity and inclusion have become fundamental pillars for creating positive learning environments. To cater to the diverse needs of students, Lyreco has built strong relationships with top SEN education suppliers including Silvine to offer comprehensive support and resources that foster inclusivity, empower students, and enable them to thrive academically.

At Lyreco, we recognise that each student learns differently, and we know it is crucial that the products we offer align with individual strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. As a new product category in our education division, the products we offer products aim to enhance accessibility by removing barriers, boosting self-confidence and motivation, and nurturing academic growth.

Take a look at our key product highlights below and find out the importance of SEN products in every educational setting:

Reading Overlays Assorted – Pack of 10- 16.888.139

In the world of education, reading is a fundamental skill. However, for students with reading difficulties or visual impairments, the process of decoding and comprehending text can be a daunting task. This is where reading overlays come to play –these transparent sheets with a coloured tint that can be placed over printed text are a simple yet powerful tool that has revolutionized the way students engage with written text.

There are many benefits for students who use reading overlays:


Increased Reading Speed
Reading overlays have been shown to enhance reading speed, allowing students to process information more efficiently. By reducing eye strain and visual distractions, these overlays enable students to maintain a steady reading pace, leading to improved overall reading fluency.


Visual Stress
Visual stress, such as patterns of glare, movement, or blurring of text, can significantly hinder reading efficiency. By using overlays, students can alleviate these visual challenges, enabling them to focus on the content better.


Positive Emotional Impact
Struggling with reading can take a toll on students’ self-esteem and motivation. Reading overlays offer a practical solution that empowers students, boosting their confidence and encouraging them to embrace reading with a renewed sense of enthusiasm.


Inclusive Learning
Reading overlays promote inclusive learning environments. By removing barriers, these overlays support students with diverse learning needs, including those with dyslexia, visual impairments, or attention-related difficulties, enabling them to participate fully in classroom activities.

Silvine A4+ Tinted Paper Project Book – 5 Sections Lined with Margin- 16.997.821

In a rapidly evolving world where attention spans are shrinking and information consumption is changing, new approaches to learning are emerging. The Tinted Refill Pads from Silvine are available in five different shades – violet, blue, cream, green, and yellow and are specifically designed to enhance both reading and writing experiences.

Tinted papers and coloured overlays have been found to aid visual learning, memory recall and reduce visual stress. All of these components are important within SEN Learning.

There are studies to suggest the colours help the wording to be seen clearer and stand out on the page. This is because the colours help block specific wavelengths produced on white backgrounds and black text, which some people may struggle with.1

By offering a more relaxed visual experience, tinted writing paper minimizes distractions, allowing learners to focus on reading and writing tasks with greater ease and concentration. This improved visual environment supports the learning needs of SEN students, facilitating their engagement and success in the classroom.

Every school should be embracing SEN solutions and Lyreco as your education partner can help with this integration of these products. By recognizing and addressing the unique needs of students with special educational needs, schools can foster an atmosphere where every learner is valued, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential.

Lyreco is committed to providing comprehensive education solutions for all students. We continue to celebrate diversity and create educational environments where all students can thrive and succeed. <BR> <BR> Together, we can build a brighter future for every learner, regardless of their abilities or challenges.
