“This approach is what moved my student from reading just braille letters to reading words. He can now record events through simple stories, read a more detailed schedule, and feel more engaged and in control of the activities because they are all based on his preferences.”

-TVI Field Tester


Reading braille is a difficult task, especially for young children. If your student is having trouble identifying braille letters and their accompanying sounds, the I-M-ABLE book and its supplementary APH materials may become your student’s new best friend. The Individualized Meaning-Centered Approach to Braille Literacy Education is described in detail in the 2016 book I-M-ABLE by Dr. Diane P. Wormsley published by AFB Press. Designed to motivate, engage, and reward children—the lessons in this kit make learning braille easy and fun.
