The braille slate and stylus is known as the braille user's pencil and is still a practical, convenient, and viable writing tool. Like the pencil, it is extremely portable, durable, and inexpensive.
The 18-minute DVD features proficient slate-users in action, using the slate to take rapid notes in real-life situations. Dr. Sally Mangold demonstrates specific teaching techniques and discusses important considerations when choosing an appropriate slate and stylus. She also demonstrates a popular method of loading the slate with paper, the correct hand position, and the proper method of writing while moving the hands from right to left across the slate.
The braille users shown using the slate and stylus, plus the teaching technique demonstrated, will help viewers understand the practical importance of knowing how to use the braille slate and stylus and make them aware of the level of performance they might expect from an efficient slate user.
The manual makes learning how to use the braille slate and stylus fun and easy and is recommended as a companion resource to augment the DVD.
The print edition is in 16-pt type.
