Wonderful Families,

Paths to Literacy is pleased to announce this wonderful new resource for
teachers and families.  They have collaborated with Linda Hagood, author of
Better Together, on this terrific new product and would like to encourage
you to explore and share this resource with others.  Attached is a flyer
that has the link to the website. As you spend time with your family during
the COVID-19 temporary time, this may be a great resource!

Playing with Words is a collaborative approach to play-based storytelling
with students who are blind or visually impaired who have additional
disabilities, including those who are autistic or deafblind.  Co-creating
stories is focused on the process, rather than the product.  That is, it
focuses on expanding language and communication, self-determination,
self-regulation, and creativity rather than a perfectly composed story.
The adult is a support, rather than an authority, building on student
interests and using props to expand playful exploration and expression. Please
take time to learn more about Playing with Words
