Texas Sensory Support Network (TxSSN): "Beginning with Braille" Book Study Online - 29086

Students learning to read braille need explicit instruction in all aspects of reading, and they require specially designed strategies and materials to promote reading success. Through this book study, "Beginning with Braille: Firsthand Experiences with a Balanced Approach to Literacy," teachers of students with visual impairments (TVIs) will explore and learn key strategies and resources for instructing reading and writing braille. Participants will read the book, review websites, and post assignments. Discussion and application activities will take place via Canvas, a platform for online learning from February 1- May 27, 2022. A copy of the book will be provided to TVIs serving students with visual impairments in a Texas LEA.
