NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND OF UTAH
NFB BRAILLE ENRICHMENT FOR
LITERACY AND LEARNING
This program is sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute, in partnership with the National Federation of the Blind of Utah and the Utah Parents of Blind Children.
Are you the parent, guardian, or teacher of a blind or low vision child who would benefit from additional Braille instruction during the summer? We have a wonderful opportunity for them this summer!
The NFB BELL program is a two-week program designed to offer pre-kindergarten and elementary-age children an opportunity to be immersed in Braille and increase the use of nonvisual skills. In this program children will receive Braille instruction daily, develop their use of tactile skills for reading, and learn alternative nonvisual techniques through arts and crafts, games, field trips, and other fun activities.
A parent seminar will also be held to offer parents practical strategies to incorporate non-visual learning and Braille into their children’s daily lives.
