Supporting Students’ Literacy Through Data-Driven Decision-Making and Ongoing Assessment of Achievement (Louis Braille Celebration)

We often take reading and writing for granted. There was a time, not so long ago, when literacy was not available to everyone. Louis Braille recognized the importance of access to information, and his simple but ingenious code has had an impact on the lives of generations of people who are blind. Two hundred years after the birth of Louis Braille, parents and educators must still work to ensure that students with visual impairments receive appropriate literacy instruction and access to information. Children who are visually impaired learn to read the same way as children who are sighted. The five key components of a reading program identified by the National Reading Panel (2000)–phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension–are as important for children who read braille as they are for children who read print. In addition, the overall goals of reading for children who are visually impaired are exactly the same as for children who are sighted. These goals include success in academic pursuits, but also development of the joy and excitement of allowing reading to transport the reader to a different place and time, and participating in writing to communicate with a broad audience on a diverse range of topics. With this in mind, the value of reading through braille is equal to the value of reading through print.
