The Braille Literacy Crisis for Children.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n3 p276-78 May-Jun 1996
This brief article outlines theories for the decrease in braille literacy among children with visual impairments. It stresses the need for braille instruction, the inability of itinerant teachers to adequately instruct many scattered visually impaired students, and resistance to using simplified Grade 1 braille. Special problems raised by integrating visually impaired children into regular classes are raised. (DB)
