Yesterday Clay had a few friends over to see what he has been doing in braille. He showed them some non-contracted letters and they each enjoyed seeing him spell out their names. His buddy Nick has been trying to figure out how he could learn enough braille to write Clay notes! Here is a short video of Clay giving a demonstration. (My video skills are about as good as my braille skills, so forgive me!) I think a great feature of this brailler is the pre-loaded app that gives letter and word quizzes. They encourage independent use of the brailler, and with the cheering voices, they are also fun. They are perfect for children learning to read and spell, exactly right for a child Clay's age.
We will post again once the contest to win Marty goes live in September.
