April 9 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Braille for Children Who Have Vision Impairments
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art61342.asp
Children who are blind or have low vision can benefit greatly as toddlers if parents provide opportunities and support for learning to read storybooks with Braille text and make certain that as older students their children can both read Braille and take notes using a Braille slate and stylus.

Advocates are protesting limits on the Amazon Kindle 2 text-to-speech option following complaints from the Authors Guild that the 'read aloud' feature would have an impact on copyrights and audio book sales. Authors could withdraw text to speech access for their own Amazon e-books. Would you pay a dollar or two more for an author to offer this option?

Talented American Idol contestant Scott MacIntyre, legally blind, finished eighth in the competition this week.
Patricia E Bauer has been following his story:

Terri Mauro comments at:

"If you've been listening along, do you think it was MacIntyre's turn to go? Did his disability help him or hurt him?"

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum also for serious concerns and supportive comments about raising children with special needs, located here -
