Paths to Literacy

for students who are blind or visually impaired

Form 4: Indicators of Readiness for a Conventional Literacy Program

Form 4: Indicators of Readiness for a Conventional Literacy Program (Appendix G)

This forms allows rating a student's developmental Readiness for a Conventional Literacy Program.

An excellent feature of this form is the "no opportunity" option. For instance, let's consider the first statement on the form: "Listens to and enjoys when others read." One particular family had a hard time thinking about how to read to their child with visual impairments. So their child had no real experiences having a book read to him. In cases such as these, the TVI's need to expose the child to these reading experiences to direct them toward literacy. Again, it's a good tool to help families of young children to look at some of the long term goals that should be set for their children.
