Every Child is a Potential Reader


These are handouts and information from our station at the AT showcase. Our philosophy at Perkins in the Deafblind program is that "every child is a potential reader" and that every student needs to learn in a literacy rich environment that is accessible to them visually and tactually. Below are some of our resources and publications.
