Paths to Literacy provides resources to teachers, schools, and districts supporting students who have disabilities, with a focus on the blind or visually impaired. Topics include General Literacy, Emergent Literacy, English Language Learners, and Mathematics. Literacy includes recognizing objects, pictures, or other symbols, and using them to communicate. Making choices, anticipating events, following simple recipes, creating or "reading" lists, and other forms of self-expression are all part of functional literacy.
