Abstract
A collection of materials that guide families through children's early experiences which lay the foundation for literacy. This is aimed at children will learn to read Braille. The Program has been designed for children with visual impairments, ages birth to eight years old, and the parents, families and professionals who care for them. It is equally valuable to older children with multiple disabilities, as well as to adults with visual impairments for use with sighted children.
Notes
The Perkins Panda Early Literacy Program consists of three packets, each containing a storybook, cassette and activity guide that are designed to support each other but also to stand alone:
Storybooks: Large print, uncontracted braille, and high-contrast illustrations. Belly Button is a tactile board book. Renowned musician and storyteller Odds Bodkin created the character Perkins Panda and wrote all the storybooks in collaboration with Perkins School for the Blind's Early Literacy Program Committee.
Cassettes: Songs and new stories to complement the storybooks. Written and performed by Odds Bodkin.
Activity guides: Suggested hands-on activities and songs that support each packet’s learning goals. Each has four sections: songs, daily activities, play and stories.
Families may view in SHERC if interested in purchasing their own.
