Direct instruction in Braille reading, writing, and Nemeth Code
Braille was the primary method of communication for people who are blind but with text-to-speech taking a precedent some argue that Braille instruction is no longer necessary. But this is false and every student should be familiar with reading Braille and Nemeth Code. MDW specializes in techniques to help a student master their reading and comprehension skills.
