This article presents the findings of a research study carried out in 2007 and the first semester of 2008 with visually impaired students from public schools in Bogotá. The aim was to assess the design of a self-access proposal to strengthen thinking skills in English reading comprehension. As a result, the book Reflective Reading: A Thinking Skills Approach was conceived. It is available in ink, Braille and compact disc format that can be recognized by reader software such as JAWS (Job Accessory With Speech) which is the most common device for the blind in integrated public schools.
