Braille Scolars are available through Quota Funds at no charge for the school.  They are fine but they don't offer a tactual Braille display like the BrailleNotes do.  I would go ahead and let them get the scolar but start telling them that she needs the BrailleNote because your daughter needs the braille display for editing.  Scolars only have auditory feedback.  When I was a TVI - I would start the BrailleNotes with students in the THIRD grade.

Hello everyone. I was wondering, Is a braille speak and scholar a good choice for a second grader who has little technology experience? They are getting her one soon. Is there something else that would be more appropriate for her? Thanks
