Teachers of students challenged by learning braille through traditional methods–perhaps because of additional physical or cognitive disabilities, the inability to speak English well, or difficulty in making the transition from print to braille–will welcome this innovative and practical resource.
Key areas covered include creating braille-rich environments, selecting and teaching key words, teaching tactile perception skills, encouraging writing skills, creating stories, keeping records, and more. A separate section suggests ways to reach special groups, such as learners with mild to moderate cognitive impairments, severe to profound cognitive impairments, and multiple physical and cognitive impairments. This essential text is enhanced by photos that bring the program to life and sample forms that help you put it into action.
