In 9th grade, this student was only using a brailler to braille out all work….a very slow process to get it transcribed, then to the teacher, then back to the student. In 2 months the student has moved to completing all work on a computer, emailing to teacher, teacher corrects and sends back.

This site is all about how to take fear out of blindness. If you have the skills to do anything you want, then fear dissolves away. Learning tactile and auditory skills is just another way to absorb information and learn to full capacity. If you have any questions, just email Dr Denise at deniserob@gmail.com and ask away. There is great VISION in learning…..a different way

Here is an article on:Twice as many people fear blindness more than premature death

The only way to take away that fear is to learn that different way.

These are some great videos on that different way–very descriptive, on what our blind children are doing on technology which is giving them the edge in school and more importantly the ability to compete at any academic level. These are all virtual lessons across the country so any child can be taught
This high school student just began 1 month ago and has not used a computer since kindergarten so forgot all skills–now everything is on a computer and moving incredibly fast–reads from the braille and nemeth books as well as etext copies to complete work
So this is a final one of my students needed to do: He created a sophisticated excel graph first, then inserted the graph into powerpoint, then added transitions, animations and then his voice…I am thinking he is getting an A on this
Oh yes, this is all done virtually —I am in one location, he in another…his para and other teachers are learning right along with him

 

When students are done with their work, they email to teacher….teacher corrects and emails back to them using track changes. One thing about students, they learn like lightening speed…it is so incredible. We should never underestimate the power of the mind…especially when it wants to learn–hundreds of other videos along the same line on youtube on just about anything….learning is inspirational
