Summary

Summary

Teachers whose students are challenged by learning braille will welcome this innovative, step-by-step guide. Whether students learning problems stem from additional physical or cognitive disabilities, the inability to speak English well, or difficulty in making the transition from print to braille, this resource will help you help them. Equally effective for teaching braille reading and writing to children or adults, Braille Literacy uses a functional approach based on concepts and vocabulary that have meaning and utility to the student. Key areas discussed include creating braille-rich environments, selecting and teaching key words, teaching tactile perception skills, encouraging writing skills, creating stories, and keeping records. Other sections focus on ways to reach special groups, such as learners with mild to moderate cognitive impairments, severe to profound cognitive impairments, or multiple physical and cognitive impairments. Sample forms help you put the program into action.
