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? Join us on the last Friday of every month and be a part of our Braille learning community!
We will mail out materials personalized to each individual’s braille reading level so participants can follow along and work together with the group. Personalization means we can print materials in fully contracted braille for the advanced participant, and up to including the uncontracted braille alphabet for those just starting the learning process. Everyone is welcome to join and learn new and fun ways to use your growing Braille skills. RSVP early in the month to receive your worksheets on time.
