The goal of this ‘pbs kid’ online fun guide is to help children who are hearing and sighted become more aware of ways that children who are blind, visually impaired, deaf, or hard-of-hearing learn, play, and enjoy the same things they do.
There are several sections: ‘Many Ways to Communicate’ invites children to consider alternate ways of sending and receiving messages using different senses. ‘Communication Exploration: Blindness’ helps children examine communication systems used by people who are blind and visually impaired, including braille and descriptive narration for TV and films. ‘Communication Exploration: Deafness’ introduces students to languages and tools used by people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, including sign language and closed captions for TV and films.
