Good Afternoon,

I have been working with a young lady who cannot use her left hand and has limited use of her right hand.  She has CP and uses a wheelchair.  She lost her sight at the age of 15.  How do you teach someone with limited hand use Braille?  I was considering use the one-handed Perkins brailler for writing, but I'm not sure she has the hand strength nor the coordination for putting paper into the machine.  I have using a VoiceNote in one hand mode so far.  Any additional suggestions would be most ehlpful.
