- city, state and zip code
Accessible for all:
- I will also include print with all of the letters of his recipients that don't know how to read braille.
- I will also include premade braille labels so that when his friends/families want to respond to Liam they can add braille to their envelopes and also their letters.
- If your student/child is ready, they can address the envelopes themselves and write the letters independently as well.
- If your student/child is not reading or writing braille yet, they can add tactile stickers, pre-made braille labels, etc.
