Hi All,

Can you please share how math is done using Braille Display/Word. Is there's a tutorial/video somewhere which we can watch to learn more about it. My daughter is in 8th grade and we trying to figure how she can solve math problems. She has a braillnote touch and a laptop.

Thanks
Shail

I hate to be the one to throw a wet blanket on college disability services but the quality varies widely. That is why it is absolutely critical that your students learn self-advocacy skills while they are in school. Once students enter college and vocational rehabilitation you cannot talk to the service providers. Your children will need self-advocacy skills for the rest of their lives.

Traci,
Your kids will have access to disabled students services at most any college that they will attend. And some help assistive technology special on staff will access what they need. Or their Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor who can also have an accesstive technology assessment done  to see what will help them in college.The counselor would be able to share that with the disabled student office at the college.
