Teacher for the Vision Impaired
Orientation and Mobility
Extended Core Curriculum
These are just some of the new words and terms I have learned and become part of my life the last few weeks. These are words that meant little to me before but now they have such a larger role in our life.
One of the big things Abby has done recent is last weekend she participated in a program at a local blind school. She spent the whole weekend with other children with visual impairments. It was amazing. She also made some a special friendship.
Abby reading Braille
Abby is learning Braille in school and is making great progress. Abby is lucky because Braille instruction is in decline. Braille is going to open up her world and keep her on grade level.
Abby in a few weeks will be getting a cane to use to help her with getting around (especially in new environments)
So many big changes going on but all full of adventure and fun. Another parent sent me "Welcome to Holland" shortly after we received Abby's diagnosis and at the time It didn't seem to fit. It didn't make any sense to me. Now .. now I get it.
