Here in this video, we see a wonderful inclusive experience. Students in class are learning to read and write their ABC's and the class races against one another to see who can write all of them first. A young girl who reads and writes in braille competes alongside her peers who are writing and reading in print. The expectation is clear and well understood in what looks to be an extremely supportive class teacher.
