BEGINNER BRAILLE LESSONS
A Beautiful Start
Our beginner braille lessons are tailored to our braille students in an easy and understandable manner. Starting from the basics, we make sure that our students have the proper learning tools to succeed and read.
BUDDY SUPPORT PROGRAM
Tackling the Stigma
Many people share a stigma towards the visually impaired community. Our buddy support program pairs a volunteer from our team with a fellow visually impaired friend. Together, the pairs can learn together and foster long-lasting friendships.
READING MATERIALS SERVICES
The key to maintaining literacy is through practice. Our Reading Materials Services provide students with original reading material that adheres to their designated reading level, keeping their skills sharp and strong.
Closing the Gap
Blind students are too often subjected to month-long waits when anticipating the arrival of their accessible textbooks, especially STEM textbooks. SciBraille aims to close this education gap by providing a free bimonthly magazine subscription that's tailored toward STEM subjects.
WHITE CANE PROGRAM
A recent study indicates that only ~2-8% of the blind community utilizes a white cane. With the already astronomical prices of braille materials, it's no wonder that white canes aren't purchased. Our white cane program provides free white canes to those in need.
