Paths to Literacy

for students who are blind or visually impaired


Sandra Kenrick and son Liam

I am the mother of two busy boys.  My oldest, Liam, is deafblind...he loves books and I love to put accessible books into his hands:) I have taught 10 years in general education classrooms and now teach students with vision impairments.
