Foundations of Braille Literacy, by Robert L. Baker, Alan J. Koenig, Evelyn J. Rex, and Diane P. Wormsley, is a manual for teaching braille designed for use by teachers of students who are blind or have low vision. This text addresses the teaching of braille reading and writing in the context of literacy in general, the whole language approach, and the way in which print reading and writing are taught. Both a theoretical framework and practical applications for instruction in braille literacy are provided. The manual can be used in university training programs and by practicing educators of children and adults who are visually impaired. The original publication date is 1995. The book is available in a Braille edition (ISBN 0-89128-935-6) or 153-page paperback print edition (ISBN 0-89128-934-8).
