If you’ve ever wondered “What is braille? What can braille do for me? Would I be able to learn braille? ,” this class is a great opportunity to get answers to your questions or just satisfy your curiosity!

Braille is critically important to the lives of those who are visually impaired or blind as it provides the ability to read and write, and in this course you will learn braille basics, some history, do tactile exercises, and learn information on ways braille can be helpful in our daily lives.

Please join us for a two-hour introduction to the braille system by calling WTBBL at (206) 615-0400 to RSVP.
