Read "Uncanny Beginnings" by Dialecticdreamer

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Uncanny Beginnings."  Shaun goes to day care for the first time.  I love this one because it introduces color dominoes that use the Feelipa symbols.  By incorporating those into games, not only is it inclusive, it enables everyone to learn the system.  So if a person loses their color vision, or all of it, the impact is slightly less because they already know some adaptive resources to compensate.  As shown, games like this work great in any language learning context because they encourage people to use vocabulary like "red," "square," "play," "next to," and so on.
