Hi all,
I am on another list with a mother of a blind 3-year-old girl living
in Guatemala. She is trying to find an affordable Braille-writing
device for her daughter to use to learn Braille. She says that in
Guatemala most blind children are not mainstreamed, but she has found
teachers who are willing to teach her daughter in a mainstreamed
situation. However, the teachers aren't knowledgeable in Braille. If
anyone has a used Perkins Brailler they'd be willing to donate to this
family, or advice about other low-cost ways she can learn Braille,
please communicate with her privately at
erickaoliva73 at yahoo.com
or contact me privately at
arielle71 at gmail.com

I have suggested a slate and stylus and she may already be using one,
but I know that it is harder to get immediate feedback on one's
writing when using a slate, so other options might be preferred at
this stage.
