From One Teacher to Another: When Should A Low Vision Student Switch to Braille?By McKee, Alison; Future Reflections, Vol. 24, No. 3
Publication Date: 2005
Article discusses issues surrounding switching students who are blind or have low vision to Braille. The author contends that this is one in a series of very important choices, and that the student, his or her family, and an interdisciplinary team should be consulted before making a decision. The switch has the potential to be a very sensitive issue, especially if a student who’s vision is declining can still read print at the time the topic is introduced. A number of case examples taken from the author’s fellow teachers are included.
