This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Famous Educators – Louis Braille. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.
Louis Braille was born on January 4, 1809 in Coupvray, France. Braille was blinded by an accident when he was three in an accident that occurred while he was playing with tools in his father’s harness shop.
Educated at the National Institute for Blind Youth in Paris, Braille invented a system of raised dots that enables blind people to read and write. Although his system was in limited use during his lifetime, the practicality as well as simple elegance of his braille system was increasingly recognized.
Today, in virtually every language throughout the world, it is the standard form of writing and reading used by blind persons. If a blind child is taught braille skills with the same sense of importance that is rightly attached to the teaching of print skills to sighted children, he or she will grow up able to read at speeds comparable to print readers, a life skill of inestimable value.
