Two hundred and ten years have past since the birth of Louis Braille. Have you ever thought about what is going on with braille in other countries? Join us for the next teleconference where we will have knowledgeable panelists speak about developments in braille education and promotion in other countries around the world.
You will learn about the work of organizations such as the World Blind Union and the International Council on English braille. How do children and adults in developing countries learn braille? What are the challenges and successes? How do decisions get made about changes to braille codes?
