Great Expectations delivers a kid-friendly learning experience to enhance the power of reading for blind and visually impaired children. This innovative program brings popular picture books to life using a multi-sensory approach - songs, tactile play, picture descriptions, body movement, engaged listening - all designed to promote active reading experiences for children with visual impairments.
Using the activities through Great Expectations, parents will learn how to describe a picture in a book, how to explore a book's visual concepts, how to play and have fun telling "the whole story." Children will learn to listen carefully to words, feelings (voice), actions, scene, plots, and character development - elements that they would otherwise miss by not seeing the pictures.
And did we mention it will be fun for everyone? It's time to expect more.
