Individualized Instruction

If you or a loved one are having trouble with just one or a few tasks around your home or neighborhood, or if you have questions about resources that are available for the visually impaired, we can help. San Diego Braille Institute now offers one-on-one instruction on a number of topics, from computers, to shopping and money management to personal care and grooming. 

To select each topic that you would like to learn about, (instruction is in person or on the phone, depending upon the topic), 

Download the Individualized Instruction Request Form or call (858) 452-1111 to set up an appointment.
