Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments and
Orientation & Mobility Instructor
As educators, we are all working to create future adults. Our goal in teaching should be to build a foundation for all future development; we are setting the stage for who each child will become. In this session, I will share why foundational and early literacy skills are critical in creating future braille readers. Existing resources will be organized and pulled together into one location in order to build a “toolbox” of ideas to work from. This session is focused on early braille readers, but many of our older students are also missing foundational skills that can be meaningfully included within current braille instruction.
