Description of Practice Perspective: Using a Group Approach to Motivate Adults to Learn Braille
Teaching braille is one of the most time-consuming tasks for a vision rehabilitation therapist. Complicating this process, adults who might be considered to be good candidates for learning braille are often resistant to the idea (Ponchillia & Ponchillia, 1996). In an attempt to address these challenges, a combination of correspondence braille classes supplemented with face-to-face group activities was implemented. Perseverance in learning braille was assessed for the six participants of this intervention.
