Webinar 1: Discussion and Questions

Building an Early Tactile Foundation for Graphics Understanding: Please post your questions and comments here!

How can you help a student take in all the information? My beginning learner I have sweep the page with their hand to just see how large the image is. Then we talk about Salient features. However, when it comes to an actual bar graph, I’m not sure how to help them process the information.


I use the aph tactile graph paper. I also cut out the “bar” and put them next to one another on a tray for comparison.

I am now using the Braille Legos. APH Hive has a TON of great lessons on how to use this.


Watching the faces of my students as they get the opportunity to explore new things js one of joys of the job!

I like the idea of cutting it out.
