If you want to keep them on grade level, the best thing you can do is take the 
actual work their peers are doing and put it into braille, then teach them the 
contractions as they come to them. Combine this with them outputting their work 
on the computer with talking software and you will have students able to compete 
on the same level as their peers

Good evening,

I am a teacher of blind students working i  In Georgia.  I am looking for some 
suggestions of instructional materials for literary braille instruction. I am 
currently using Patters and was just wondering if anyone out there may be using 
else.  I am working Two students who are total and three low-vision students.  I 
am seeking some materials to use with the low-vision students.

A long journey begins with one step
There is a literacy crisis in America.
Only 10% of children who are blind are 
taught to read Braille.
