Have you considered learning Braille but are unsure if you are ready? Are you in the process of learning Braille but looking for additional ways to practice and refine your skills? Have you learned Braille in the past but want to discover new ways to incorporate it in your daily life? Then come join us on the last Friday of every month and be a part of our Braille learning community!
We send out materials personalized to the individual’s braille reading level so participants can follow along, work together with the group, and enjoy the process of learning. The personalization includes anywhere from fully contracted braille for the advanced participant just looking to keep their skills fresh, up to including the full uncontracted braille alphabet for those just starting the learning process. All individuals are welcome to come and see what Braille is all about and learn new and fun ways to use your growing Braille skills. RSVP early in the month to receive your worksheets on time.
