Learning Braille

The dedicated staff of Cleveland Sight Center identifies the need for clients to learn Braille. Many people who are blind or have low vision have never had the opportunity to learn to read Braille, a skill set which contributes to greater independence. With a strong foundation in Braille, a person with vision loss will have the tools to handle the hurdles that may come about in their day-to-day interactions with education, employment and daily living.

Classes are taught in small group sessions with students of similar Braille backgrounds, ranging from beginners to advanced skill levels. These popular classes are taught by a qualified instructor where students spend one hour, twice a week learning and reviewing Braille skills.
