Using everyday activities, Child Development consultants help blind and visually impaired children — birth through age 6 — to be on the right path to successful cognitive development and early pre-braille skills. This is key to fostering literacy as children begin formal schooling. Braille Institute assists families of blind or visually impaired children to empower them to grow and thrive.
