Does your family include a 5-10-year-old in the early stages of learning braille? Want to encourage your child to embrace braille to help them to succeed in school and life?

CNIB has a program to support your family on this braille literacy journey! 

  • Find out why braille is important and learn the basics yourself!
  • Get quick tips and tricks from other parents
  • Explore easy, inexpensive and fun ways to support a love of braille in your family

Make braille awareness a family affair! Teen siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents and caregivers are all welcome to participate. Each household should register separately. Free Family Library braille resource packages will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis. Each package contains an assortment of printbraille books and items to make learning braille at home fun! Limit: one package per child. 

Three one-hour workshops are tentatively scheduled for Sunday, January 31, February 7 and February 14. Note: presentation portions of workshops will be recorded, for families unable to attend the live sessions.
