Learn braille like never before!
So what's brailleSCHOOL you ask?
brailleSCHOOL is an interactive, 10-week virtual program where parents will learn everything you need to know about braille to support your child who is blind or visually impaired.
I firmly believe that it is the responsibility of the parent to learn braille. And the earlier, the better- however that's not always easy to do when you have a million other things to do for your child, family, career. The list goes on and on, right?
My daughter Madilyn uses braille to read and write. One day I realized that if I didn't learn braille as well, I'd fail at supporting her learning at home. And literacy doesn't stop at just reading textbooks and completing homework; I wanted to share my love for reading for pleasure with her, too.
For me, learning braille was an important way to show her that I cared about her and how she interacts with the world. I dream of writing her letters about everything happening at home after she goes to college. For now, I know that me being able to answer, "Mom, what's this say?" will help put her on the right path to having her pick at which college that will be.
Do you want to learn braille to support your child too? Maybe you just haven't found the best way for you. I'd love to help you take that next step if you think brailleSCHOOL might be your answer.
