Description of Teaching Behaviors and Attitudes of Braille Instructors in Adult Rehabilitation Centers
Abstract: This article reports the findings of a nationwide survey of braille instructors in adult rehabilitation centers. Most teachers taught braille to fewer than 20 percent of their clients and few taught complex reading skills. Instructors' attitudes toward braille were influenced by their training site, their type of college degree, and their degree of vision. Teaching behaviors were affected by the site at which the instructor taught, the degree of vision of the instructor, and the type of degree held by the instructor.
