June 1, 2019 Workshop: The ABCs of Learning Braille: Tips, Tricks and Tools for Adults
Date : Saturday, June 1, 2019
Time : 1:00 PM (EST)
Join Braille Literacy Canada for a special teleconference all about learning braille as an adult or senior. A panel of speakers all of whom have taught braille as adults will share their tips, tricks and tools for success. Topics will include:
- What do we know about how braille reading works? What skills are needed to learn braille, and do these skills change as we get older?
- Myths and misconceptions about learning braille later in life. Is it harder? Is it possible? Who is braille for anyway?
- Take-away strategies: Practical tips, tricks and advice for adult braille learners
Leave with a toolbox of knowledge and strategies to set you on your way, and hear from others who have both taught and learn braille as adults. Whether you are an adult wondering about learning braille yourself, a family member of someone experiencing sight loss or a rehabilitation professional, this workshop is for you!
