Mistakes Don't Matter!

While we still have 'Marty' the Smart brailler http://www.perkinsproducts.org/smartbrailler  with us we decided to do a bit of spelling practice. With 'Heather'( one of marty's inbuilt voices) telling us what we had written it was easy to hear when things hadn't gone quite right and just as easy with the inbuilt error correction system to put it right again. Mistakes don't matter because they can be sorted out easily , they are not permanent and this builds confidence and self esteem. The act of putting them right also reinforces the correct patterns  . we shall miss Marty
when we wave him 'Goodbye' off to his next family!! Thanks to http://www.wonderbaby.org/articles/backpacking-smart-brailler-uk
