braille|SCHOOL is a 10-week interactive online-learning program for parents and educators of children with visual impairments who want to learn braille to fully support their children.

The curriculum is video-based lessons with assignments given each week, followed by a comprehensive quiz. Parents are encouraged to view the weekly videos, then perform a variety of action steps to use what they’ve learned. Action steps include tasks such as practicing with flashcards, playing games with their child, writing notes, and more.

Online quizzes present parents with visual braille questions to decode by sight, as well as tips for memorizing the alphabet and contractions when you get stuck!

The program offers a wide-range of practice guides and materials to use for different learners. Videos and tutorials help parents learn how to use a Perkins Brailler and other assistive technology devices.
