I am absolutely delighted to share that the NFB’s Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) academy is finally coming to Kansas City!! Unfortunately, it conflicts with KSSB’s K-S.E.E. ESY program–the first week of BELL overlaps the last week of K-S.E.E. Still, it’s a great start to have the program finally come to our area, and maybe next year things will be better coordinated. (It may be ok to go only for one week if this conflict impacts you–I would suggest contacting the local coordinator to find out.)
BELL Academy is beyond affordable–only $50 for a two-week program. It may be challenging to get your kiddo there if you work full-time, however: the program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. weekdays from June 18 through 29. If you’d like more information about BELL, visit the NFB at https://nfb.org/bell-academy. Our local BELL is listed under Missouri.
