Braille Challenge Information for Teachers 2018-02-27T21:29:07+00:00

Teachers can still register students until February 16!

Consider encouraging your students to attend a Braille Challenge regional event. It’s a full day of fun and camaraderie, often including workshops for parents, entertainment, speakers, technology demonstrations and prizes. More than 45 agencies across the U.S. and Canada are finalizing their calendars through the next two months –here is an updated list of regional event sites and dates.

Blind service agencies and state schools for blind and visually impaired children throughout the United States and Canada host their own fun-filled Braille Challenge® regional events each year between December and mid-March. A regional event offers students of all reading levels a broad and enriching experience. Most include parent workshops, entertainment, speakers, or access technology demonstrations. But more importantly, the regionals give parents of blind children the opportunity to meet each other and set the stage for students to experience the exhilaration of live competition and receive acknowledgment for their hard work. However, for some students this may be over-stimulating or too stressful and not always optimal for success. If you feel your student may need any special consideration, please contact the Regional Coordinator in your Area.
