I have some creative student workers, wonderful faculty members, a 3D printer, Wikki Stix, a Braille printer and a thermoform printer which I used last semester to create manipulatives for one of our blind students who takes some challenging classes. I meet with the faculty member before the start of the semester and we go through what homework assignments and tests look like. Then we begin the process of creating alternative methods for the student to learn. It's a big task but everyone participates and it gets done joyfully! The student succeeded last semester with this assistance.

Subject: [Athen] Economics graphs

Hi All,

We have a blind student enrolled in an economics class for this upcoming Fall semester and the professor has reached out to describe the complexity of the graphs within the course. For example, the lines on the graphs move and he will be explaining this in class via PowerPoint. Can anyone give me suggestions for making these graphs accessible for the PowerPoint, textbook, and other assignments that I can share with the professor and the student?
