Hadley’s newest course, Braille and Your Baby or Toddler, is now open to Family Education and Professional students. With guidance from parents and other important adults, infants and toddlers can gain the skills they need to become successful braille readers later. The goal of this course is to provide the tools and information needed to prepare a child for reading braille. These include experiences and activities that promote the development of oral language, concepts and motor skills. The course also introduces the braille alphabet and numbers for sighted readers, and discusses the creation of a braille-rich environment. While available online through eHadley, you also have the choice of going mobile with this course, which is available as an eBook. It can be accessed via a Kindle, Nook, iPad or other eBook readers.
