Include Me – Braille literacy for children with multiple disability and deafblindness
This second open source “Include Me” publication addresses braille and its importance in education and social inclusion for children with blindness, deafblindness and multiple disability. The publication’s origins lie with the World Braille Council, which in 2018 resolved to work with ICEVI and the World Blind Union to provide educational support, including braille access, for children with multiple disability in developing countries. Underpinning the World Braille Council’s resolution is the firm belief that all children can communicate and learn, and all children have the right to full inclusion in education and society.
Please note that a braille font such as SimBraille is needed to correctly show the braille characters included in the Word version of the publication.
ICEVI dedicates this publication to Mr Ajay Kumar Mittal, former Executive Committee Member of ICEVI and Secretary General of World Blind Union. A braille user himself, A.K. was a strong advocate for the right to education and braille literacy for children with blindness, deafblindness and multiple disability.
