About NFB BELL
NFB BELL Academy, an annual summer program, is appropriate for blind and low-vision children, ages 4-12, who:
* Do not receive enough Braille and nonvisual skills instruction in school
* Could benefit from more Braille exposure over the summer
* Would enjoy connecting with blind role models
While the program is typically in person across the country, we are excited to offer it virtually in 2021.
Take advantage of this opportunity for your child to connect with blind role models.
Limited space is available. Learn more and apply now!
