Teachers whose students are challenged by learning braille will welcome this innovative, step-by-step guide. Whether students' learning problems stem from additional physical or cognitive disabilities, the inability to speak English well, or difficulty in making the transition from print to braille, this resource will help you help them. Equally effective for teaching braille reading and writing to children or adults, Braille Literacy uses a functional approach based on concepts and vocabulary that have meaning and utility to the student. Key areas discussed include creating braille-rich environments, selecting and teaching key words, teaching tactile perception skills, encouraging writing skills, creating stories, and keeping records. Other sections focus on ways to reach special groups, such as learners with mild to moderate cognitive impairments, severe to profound cognitive impairments, or multiple physical and cognitive impairments. Sample forms help you put the program into action.

Phlip (Flip) spelled the way it is, is explained in the story. It is a tale that might be more enjoyable being read aloud. What would you do if you suddenly saw a green creature, rounded and supposedly deaf, in your bedroom reading one of your books? Read to find out Forests reactions, especially when she later finds it can speak and hear because of what? Both are avid readers. In fact Phlip reads at the pace of a computer! Yet he is not a robot, but a Pill from Pingo, a strange creature, not from Mars as Forest thinks first he must be. . .

Extraordinary Measures

Disability in Music

Author: Joseph N. Straus

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199831408

Category: Music

Page: 224

Approaching disability as a cultural construction rather than a medical pathology, this book studies the impact of disability and concepts of disability on composers, performers, and listeners with disabilities, as well as on discourse about music and works of music themselves. For composers with disabilities--like Beethoven, Delius, and Schumann--awareness of the disability sharply inflects critical reception. For performers with disabilities--such as Itzhak Perlman and Evelyn Glennie--the performance of disability and the performance of music are deeply intertwined. For listeners with disabilities, extraordinary bodies and minds may give rise to new ways of making sense of music. In the stories that people tell about music, and in the stories that music itself tells, disability has long played a central but unrecognized role. Some of these stories are narratives of overcoming-the triumph of the human spirit over adversity-but others are more nuanced tales of accommodation and acceptance of life with a non-normative body or mind. In all of these ways, music both reflects and constructs disability.
