We have been hearing of the many and varied ways in which the free equipment is being used. One lady is teaching her husband Braille so that he can communicate with her in this medium.
Another knitter is using the Abacus to keep track of the number of rows in a pattern. One learner is storing a phone number on her Abacus until it can be written down. The Abacus we are told, provides just the right toy during lock down.
Many are using the Dymo slots on the hand frame to do Braille labelling. This transforms the ability to find things around the house, and ensure that garlic is used for instance rather than ginger!
Rubik’s cube enthusiasts and young children are having fun with the word forming block.
