More than Meets the Eye: A Detailed Analysis of Braille Hand Movements

Date of event:  10/22/2020


Tessa McCarthy, PhD, University of Pittsburgh


FIMC-VI staff participated in this session at Getting in Touch with Literacy and found the information so valuable, we’re bringing the session to you for free! This session will provide an overview of the results of an intensive study of the hand movements of 16 adult braille readers while reading different types of texts to evaluate the differing characteristics of highly efficient and slower braille readers. Implications for the classroom will be discussed.
