Subject: Re: Teaching maths to blind child

I have two thoughts that I hope will be useful for you. First, there is a very good site on the abacus which might be helpful: The Abacus: The Art of Calculating with Beads - Luis Fernandes http://www.ee.ryerson.ca/~elf/abacus/ My second thought was to provide you with some online resources that are specifically for the blind. I don't know of anything that is just for mathematics but it might be possible that you could contact these people and they could provide you with the information you need. Blind Children's Center http://www.blindcntr.org/start.htm The Internet Resources for Special Children (IRSC) http://www.irsc.org/blind.htm I hope that helps. -Suzanne A., for the Teacher2Teacher service
