Free Program for School Age-Youth
Braille Institute’s Youth Program aims to create a solid foundation among school-age youth (ages 7 to 19) by working with educators and parents through workshops led by our Child Development Program, to set realistic goals based on each student’s ability. Our curriculum supports the nine areas of the Expanded Core Curriculum which include;
- Career Education
- Independent Living Skills
- Orientation and Mobility
- Recreation and Leisure
- Sensory Efficiency
- Social Interaction Skills
- Compensatory Skills
- Assistive Technology
Through strategic workshops and hands on learning, students and their families are exposed to key resources via partnerships that include college visits, career exploration, Johnny Mercer music program, and advocacy support to promote independence and self-determination that lead to a better quality of life long-term.
