2018 BELL Academy

The National Federation of the Blind recently wrapped up the 2018 Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy. We conducted programs in Chicago and Springfield. This was a great opportunity for Braille skills to be addressed in a fun and new environment.

We would like to thank all of the parents, teachers, volunteers and kids who participated for making this years program a hit! Read our Newsletters to find out more about how the program went. To read the newsletters, please visit the BELL Academy section on the Newsletters page.
