BELL is coming to Kansas!

The National Federation of the Blind’s Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy is coming to Kansas City!  The Kansas session will be held from Monday, June 10, through Friday, June 21 at KSSB; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

As described on their Web site, BELL

is a nationwide summer program offered by the National Federation of the Blind that prepares blind and low-vision children, ages four through twelve, to grow into confident and independent blind people who live the lives they want.

Activities are provided in a day program or residential setting, depending on location. In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adult mentors, and enjoy field trips to sites related to the NFB BELL Academy curriculum. Through these activities and interactions, the children learn that blindness or low vision does not define them or their future.
