Dot-to-dot is a self-teach uncontracted (grade 1) braille course. There are two versions available, the touch course is designed for people learning to read braille by touch because of sight loss. The other course (TC21442) is for people learning to read braille by sight. Many of the elements of both versions of the course are the same, but the touch learners' course provides much more reading materials at the early stages, concentrating on tips to help you track across the text and tactual discrimination skills. Starting with pre-braille skills, the complete uncontracted braille code is taught in small steps, with plenty of practice exercises including games, puzzles and short reading passages. The course focuses on the practical use of braille right from the start, encouraging you to write braille, including labelling items, and to become familiar with brailled playing cards in order to enjoy a game. Instructions to accompany Dot-to-dot Touch are available in a variety of formats and are purchased separately. Please order: TC21443B: Dot-to-dot Touch instructions, in braille TC21443CD: Dot-to-dot Touch instructions, on audio CDs. TC21443M: Dot-to-dot Touch instructions, computer multimedia CD TC21443P: Dot-to-dot Touch instructions, in print (16pt). Note: if you intend to go on to learn the fully contracted braille code (grade 2), then you may be interested in the Fingerprint course (TC21439) instead.
