LEARN TO READ BRAILLE IN 3 DAYS!
Seems impossible but it’s true. Learn to read braille by sight in just 3 days. This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who is involved in the blind and visually impaired community in any way:
* Educators, family and friends will gain the knowledge and tools necessary to support the braille readers in their lives.
* Literary Braille Instructors will learn a different approach to teaching braille and will have a wealth of reference material to use with their own students.
* Transcribers will have the opportunity to brush up on their proofreading skills.
* For anyone interested in becoming a braille transcriber or just wanting to learn more about braille, attend all three days, or take advantage of the special one-day registration.
Whether you’ve never seen a braille dot in your life or you have been reading or transcribing braille for years, you will benefit from this amazing opportunity. Gaeir Dietrich will be presenting her “Braille Boot Camp” at NBA’s Conference, May 1-3 in Cleveland, Ohio.
