She recommend making a large tackle version of a braille cell with a 6 muffin baking pan and 6 tennis balls.
Now you can take away and add balls to represent different letters. Not only is it really easy for Abby to feel she can see it so she gets the reinforcement two different ways.
So with the flashcards we made up a game. I would hand her a card. If she could recognized the letter and recreate it in the pan she would get 3 points. If she didn't know the letter but could recreate it in the pan she would get a point. If she could recognize the letter once I fixed it for her in the pan she would get a point. Abby is very completive. She breezed through all the card and did better then she ever has. She had a smile on her face during the whole time. She now has a score to 'beat'.
