The APH I-M-ABLE Kit: Helping Young Students Succeed

A sample of the contents of the kit including book, tray, binder, felt board, and velcro braille syllables

“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.
