Infants and toddlers benefit from many different types of experiences in their early years, to help them to develop necessary concepts and skills for learning braille.  These include:

  • number concepts and patterns
  • motor skills
  • exposure to braille in daily life
  • literature-rich experiences
  • reading from left to right
  • moving from concrete to abstract
