3 questions to ...
... the speakers Anders Rönnbäck and Kia Johansson from The Swedish National Agency of Special Needs Education and Schools, SPSM.

1. What will you talk about?
The presentation will be about how to strengthen the tactile decoding of braille. Sighted children learn the shapes of letters long before school start in both spontaneous and structured reading and writing activities. A child with blindness however meets tactile characters to a very limited extent and needs to be compensated for the lack of corresponding stimulation.

2. What do you want the audience to learn from your presentation?
We want the audience to be convinced that specific training interventions can improve tactile reading performance.

3. What are you looking forward to, most of all?
We look forward meeting lots of interesting and inspiring people working in the field of tactile reading, and to learn about new research.
