Abstract
A book of fun, practical suggestions, creative ideas and educational strategies to help visually impaired students learn to read and write. At the heart of this book is the belief that all children have the right and need to be literate and that visually impaired children can learn to read and write as well as sighted children. The only difference might be in how they learn and what methods work best. This book is experience based, presenting opportunities for the parent and child to "experience literacy" in a variety of ways, such as touch, sight, and sound and in a variety of settings.
