This September, join our online beginners’ course to Grade 1 Braille for sighted parents of visuaIly impaired children.

Being the only Braillist in the family can sometimes feel isolating for the young and visually impaired, but Braille can also feel daunting to sighted parents, too.

Many people aren’t aware that, for sighted people, it’s possible to learn Braille visually rather than by touch, which is how you will learn in our FREE, 9-week course starting on the 17th of September (to include a break for half term).

The course outline and details can be found here:

We asked one of our mentors, Nathan, why learning Braille is so important:

‘I feel that a parent of a VI child learning braille would benefit (from this course) because they would have an appreciation for how hard their child works to learn it and how challenging using braille can be. It will also help in their child’s development as they can help each other and affirm their knowledge.’

With just 12 spaces, we expect this course to be very popular, so we recommend early booking!
