This program will also help experienced readers who demonstrate scrubbing, back tracking and letter or number reversal errors. Rapid finger movement is fostered through repetition. Adults who have experienced recent vision loss will also benefit from this program.

Unit 1: Tracking — The lessons in Unit 1 develop tactile discrimination, proper hand position, rapid tracking, and teach the two-handed split reading method. Research has shown that tactile discrimination, prior to learning the braille alphabet, improves overall braille reading skills including braille letter recognition and decreases backtracking and scrubbing By Sally Mangold, Ph.D. behaviors. Unit 2: Alphabet — Students who have completed Unit 1: Tracking are ready to move on to Unit 2: Alphabet. Unit 2 systematically introduces the letters of the alphabet while continuing to build on the fundamentals of good braille reading skills. Each lesson includes criterion tests, braille worksheets, games and more.

Unit 3: UEB Contractions is designed to help teachers of the visually impaired teach reading skills while teaching the braille code. All of the parts in Unit 3 are controlled for contractions and contain both reading and writing exercises. Common words and contractions, that beginning readers encounter, are introduced early in the program to help facilitate reading. Punctuation and common math symbols are also introduced. The reading exercises include repeated readings, sentence tracking, multiple choice questions and clue activities. The writing exercises include sentence copying, sentence starters and open-ended questions. Included in each of the parts of Unit 3: UEB Contractions are popular print reading books. Ready-to-cut and apply braille labels for each of the print books are also included. These print books give the student an opportunity to read for pleasure and are accompanied by picture descriptions in the teacher’s manual that may be used by the teacher or parent. All but one of the print books are controlled for contractions.  There are assessment sheets at the end of each part to help teachers determine if their student is ready to advance to the next part. Each of the parts (Parts A-E) has its own teacher’s manual that includes step-by-step instructions, print replicas of each braille worksheet and picture descriptions for the print books which may be read to the student. Also included is the Shortforms List from the ICEB Code Maintenance Committee for the contractions introduced to that point of the program. Denotes new product listing

Mangold Brailler Pad

Dots For All Occasions - A Mangold Exclusive

Designed for the Perkins Brailler

Here’s an assortment of adhesive dots to meet every marking need. Transcribers, teachers, students, and parents can now mark anything from maps to appliances. Often individuals who are visually impaired have very different preferences when it comes to dot markers. An individual may want a large dot marker on a microwave and prefer a braille-sized dot on a computer keyboard or vice versa. Transcribers who are brailling math graphs or charts will appreciate the wide variety of sizes, shapes, and textures.

Once you have this pad attached to your Perkins Brailler, you will not want to give it up. The Mangold Brailler Pad changes the sound and feel of the Perkins Brailler. The pad grips the bottom of the Perkins Brailler and remains attached. It fits nicely on the Brailler Tiltstand.

Each set includes dots having seven different textures in sizes ranging from the size of a braille dot to 11/16”. Included are cork, felt, clear vinyl, velour, spongy, transparent domeshaped, and our braille-sized clear Locator Dots™ for a total of 392 dots. The Jumbo Dot Marker Collection contains twice the number of dots as the Standard Dot Marker Collection.

Talking Tactile Tablet (TTT)

Power Chord Braille Keyboard

runs the SAL2 Courseware and more!

Electronic Braille keyboard for your Computer!

The redesigned Talking Tactile Tablet, nicknamed “TTT”, is an inexpensive, rugged and simple computer peripheral device designed for use as a “viewer” for audio/tactile materials and the SAL2 Courseware. Most simply, it consists of a computer touch screen connected to a PC via a USB cable. A hinged weighted frame that can be opened and closed by a user with limited manual dexterity serves to hold a selected tactile graphic sheet motionless in place against the touch-sensitive surface.

The Power Chord Braille Keyboard plugs in to the USB port of a computer. There are no additional cables, drivers or software needed. The keyboard is laid out like one on a braille notetaker. This simple unit can be used for 6-key entry of braille in any braille transcription software program, such as Duxbury, MegaDots, or Braille 2000.

When the user presses points on the braille or tactile sheet that is mounted on the TTT, his or her finger pressure is transmitted through the touch screen to the computer. The computer is able to provide audio feedback to the user, as a confirmation of a correct or incorrect answer pressed on the braille sheet or to voice, spell and describe a braille word. The SAL2 System records each student’s performance and provides a teacher report on individual student activities. Includes: USB Cable, Starter Software Bundle (World Map, TTT Match Game, TTT Snakes & Ladders) and Product Manual. Plus a 30-day demo version of the TTT Authoring Tool with 3 sample overlay sheets. Requires: PC with windows 98 or higher, or Intel Mac running Windows. Note: The full National Geographic Talking Tactile Atlas of the World, full Authoring Tool, and Authoring Tool Templates may be purchased separately. TGTTT

$799.00

The Power Chord Editor Program is a simple MS Windows compatible software application for use with the Power Chord Braille Keyboard. Words and characters are spoken aloud as they are entered in either contracted or uncontracted literary braille. The computer monitor shows the simulated braille on screen and the student can easily toggle to show the print view. The Power Chord Braille Keyboard also enables students to practice their braille writing skills by entering the answers to the SAL2 writing exercises on an electronic braille keyboard. When the SAL2 virtual tutor asks the student to complete a writing exercise, they simply turn to the Power Chord Braille Keyboard and begin brailling. They receive immediate feedback from SAL2 as to the accuracy of their writing and they experience the feel of using an electronic braille keyboard. Requires: PC with MS Windows 98 or higher, or Macintosh with OS X or higher. Note: The Power Chord Keyboard can be used with both PC and Mac computers. TGPC

Sample activities range from preparing an after-school snack to getting dressed to building a puzzle – the possibilities are endless. The book provides detailed instructions and examples for preparing a child’s first schedule, and then progressing to more varied and sophisticated schedules.

American Heritage Dictionary

Sentence Tracking is designed to teach students how to scan across a line of type to improve reading speed, word recognition, and word discrimination. This book differs from Symbol Discrimination and Letter Tracking in that the learner does not look at each letter or symbol individually but differentiates real words from nonsense groups of letters. Sentence Tracking aids in vision training by correcting problems with left-toright eye movement, omissions, and reversals. Lessons can be timed and progress can be charted.

Describing Physics is Good for Sighted & Blind Students Did You Order a Pizza? I invented a game called “Pizza Delivery” to make school building familiarization more interesting for a first grade student. The student is told that a teacher, librarian or principal in a specific room has ordered a pizza. He then carries a small pizza box and “delivers the pizza” to the designated room by planning and executing the route. I have incorporated the use of money into this game by adding payment of the pizza to the game. The cost of the pizza is changed for every delivery. I am waiting in the room for him and pay him for the pizza. He is required to give me correct change. If he does not deliver the pizza within a reasonable amount of time, the pizza is free. My student is able to practice routes for a much longer period of time because he enjoys playing the game.

I am a high school physics teacher. I often have my sighted students explain or describe verbally a demo or project as they are presenting. When the student communicates this poorly, I ask them to imagine they are describing their presentation to someone who is blind. It’s then that they delve into real thought about their observation and important variables that control the situation. This is beneficial to both the sighted student as well as any classmates who are visually impaired. The sighted students practice their observation and communication skills which are critical to the study of physics and the blind student gets a play-by-play description of the presentation which allows for a better understanding of the concepts of physics.

Idea Exchange! Color Me Scented To make colors more meaningful to my students who are blind, I associate them with smells. I pair the following scents and colors: Yellow - Lemon Red - Cherry Green - Mint White - Vanilla Blue - Blueberry Orange - Orange Brown - Chocolate Black - Licorice You can make a “dough” mixture using 1 cup flour, 1 cup salt and 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil. In a separate container add the desired color and matching scent to about 3/4 cups of water. Slowly pour the colored scented water into the flour mixture. Knead until a smooth, not sticky, consistency is achieved. Ask the students to use the dough to form shapes that are typically that color; e.g. a banana using the yellow dough, etc. They can also make a “picture” from different colors; e.g. green grass below a blue sky, etc.

Begin With Exploration I love introducing 4-year-olds to braille. The beginning reading braille program that I authored begins at the most basic level. That is, we begin with simple tracking skills and the mechanics of braille. You will discover that a 4-yearold often wanders around the page with his fingers and doesn’t complete the task as designed. That’s okay! Begin slowly and praise for any correct hand movements and day-to-day progress. The guidelines presented in the program are appropriate for 5 and 6-year-old children who are ready to learn to read. They may be too high for a 4-year-old. You should be looking for the point at which each skill seems to become automatic and then move on through the program. The 2-handed reading techniques will begin to appear naturally after the basic skills are mastered. Try to avoid over correcting your students reading techniques, as this can create a slow or more analytical reader.

The roto-molded rubber ball features our unique “power” tunnel. The Module is inserted into a deflated ball that is inflated so the flexible walls of the tunnel surround the module, locking it in place. The sound emanates from one side of the tunnel and the on/off button is accessed from the other.The module is protected all around by a cushion of air that allows it to be bounced, thrown and kicked just as you would any other ball.

Living on Your Own: An Independent Living Simulation Covers a Twelve Week Period This unique, life-management set, contains a reproducible book of teacher-guided lessons and a workbook of application exercises. The set teaches students to make independent decisions and then lets them experience the results of their choices. During the 12-week simulation, students live and work in the imaginary towns of Walchville and Rivertown. They open bank accounts, make budgets, use public transportation, and buy on credit. Students deal with the consequences of their decisions, as they pay bills and balance their budgets. They also learn to meet small emergencies and unexpected expenses in the final weeks of this simulation. The lifelike continuity and sequential approach of this package makes it an effective tool for fostering self-confidence and independence. Student workbook activities apply concepts from the lessons using realistic maps, ads, application forms, schedules, and checks to teach practical lifemanagement skills. The teacher’s manual provides reproducible materials necessary to the simulation, as well as copies of student worksheets, answers, and complete lesson plans. Most of the student workbook is in 12-pt type. The workbook may be enlarged if necessary or students may gain valuable practice using a magnifier. Grades 8-12. LO1

Unit 3: UEB Contractions is designed to help teachers of the visually impaired teach reading skills while teaching the braille code. All of the parts in Unit 3 are controlled for contractions and contain both reading and writing exercises. Common words and contractions, that beginning readers encounter, are introduced early in the program to help facilitate reading. Punctuation and common math symbols are also introduced. The reading exercises include repeated readings, sentence tracking, multiple choice questions and clue activities. The writing exercises include sentence copying, sentence starters and open-ended questions. Included in each of the parts of Unit 3: UEB Contractions are popular print reading books. Ready-to-cut and apply braille labels for each of the print books are also included. These print books give the student an opportunity to read for pleasure and are accompanied by picture descriptions in the teacher’s manual that may be used by the teacher or parent. All but one of the print books are controlled for contractions.  There are assessment sheets at the end of each part to help teachers determine if their student is ready to advance to the next part. Each of the parts (Parts A-E) has its own teacher’s manual that includes step-by-step instructions, print replicas of each braille worksheet and picture descriptions for the print books which may be read to the student. Also included is the Shortforms List from the ICEB Code Maintenance Committee for the contractions introduced to that point of the program. Denotes new product listing
