While preparing a workshop on writing by students with visual impairments, I found a general education web site about writing. This was the National Writing Project at www.nwp.org
One of the articles at this web site was about how writing can impact the brain. That article is “Writing and the Brain: Neuroscience Shows the Pathways to Learning” at http://www.nwp.org/cs/public/print/resource/3555
As I read the article, I thought about the need for students with visual impairments to write more and to write as part of a collaborative effort. Logistics may make that harder for students who use Braille but I think it behooves us as teachers of students with visual impairments to think of ways to make that happen.
