Abstract

English occupies an important place in our school curriculum. Proficiency in English helps in the better understanding of subjects like Social Studies, Science and Mathematics. Hence, learning English as a Second Language has become a necessity to everyone, including visually impaired students. Student must develop reading habit which is the most important of the language skills. Of course as it always has been felt listening of course is an important activity for the students and particularly for the visually challenged students it is the skill that has to be mastered. However when they read the texts on their own it really makes the difference. The paper tries to explicate how Braille can be essential tool for children with visual impairments and insists on urging the stakeholders to take all necessary measures to provide them with the Braille textbooks so that they are not lost in the vast ocean of learning.
