Braille Enrichment for Literacy & Learning (BELL) Academy held in Virginia – What Parents and Students Say
NFB BELL Academy provides children ages 4-12 with Braille instruction through fun, hands-on learning activities.
NFB BELL Academy targets blind and low-vision children who do not receive enough Braille and nonvisual skill instruction in school or who could benefit from Braille enrichment over the summer.
NFB BELL Academy typically runs for two week sessions, 6 hours a day, from Monday through Friday.
In addition to crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, benefit from peer learning and mentoring from blind and low vision adults, and enjoy field trips that reinforce skills learned in the BELL classroom.
Virginia’s BELL Academy will run from Monday July 31 to Friday August 11.
This is a terrific opportunity for your child to meet other blind and low vision kids, in an environment that promotes confidence, competence, and the love of reading!
