Exercises are carefully planned to increase the sensitivity of the fingertips; this sensitivity is a crucial aspect of developing skills to read braille.
Each lesson introduces a topic/concept and provides clear examples. Lessons build upon each other and are organized to reference basic braille concepts and rules.
Consumers in the program engage in two 1-hour weekly sessions with an adaptive technology trainer.
