A new French website devoted to braille literacy and the education of children with visual impairments has been launched and can be visited at: Abracadabraille.org. Using translations of more than 150 articles from Paths to Literacy to get started, their hope is to create a similar type of website for teachers and families in French-speaking countries.
The website includes the following sections:
Blog: Inclusive Teaching Strategies
- Braille and Literacy
- Braille and Numeracy
- Orientation and Mobility
- Daily Life
- Lego Braille Bricks
- Perkins Braillewriters
- Adapted Books
The site was created by Marc Angelier, who has been a TVI for 20 years, and Marie Oddoux, who is an OT and Low Vision specialist. They invite members of the community to share articles in French.
