The Braille Connection: Braille Reading Program For Newly Blinded Print Readers

Braille Connection KitMessage: Can you supply a list of curriculum materials to use for teaching braille to adolescents who are beginning braille users?
location: Maryland

Braille Connection is designed to aid students in making the transition from print to braille by leading them through several levels of instruction. The program begins by helping students to develop skills in tactual discrimination. It then goes on to teach Grade 1 Braille which corresponds letter-for-letter with print. Finally, Braille Connection introduces Grade 2 Braille, which is the standard form of braille used in publications such as books and magazines. Developed by APH and the National Federation of the Blind (NFB).

Braille Connection is designed to be used under the supervision of a qualified braille teacher, and may be used for instruction in a variety of settings. This includes rehabilitation agencies in which clients work regularly with a consultant; at home where students work under the supervision of a teacher or consultant–either in person, by mail, or by phone; and in schools where the students work directly with a teacher.
