The great thing I found about making our home accessible is that I could do it myself! Schools aren’t always great at this unfortunately, but remember that you are your child’s greatest advocate! When Madilyn entered Kindergarten, we actually had to fight with the school she attended to make them put her name in braille on her cubby when all the other kids had their’s in print. Can you believe that?!
So, if you’re looking for a fun activity that you can do at home, pre-k or school, try our “That’s My Name!” Game. If your child’s not ready to complete it on her own, then take a few minutes each day and practice together. Madilyn thrives on interaction and it increases her interest dramatically! Set a time each afternoon to play together and keep the game handy where you can get it out quickly.
Play the game with your child or student, then let us know how it goes! Share your pic using #BrailleNameGame on Twitter!
