The National Federation of the Blind of CT will once again host a week-long Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy in 2016! Our NFB BELL Academy will be held in Wethersfield for children ages 4 to 12 years old. In addition to Braille crafts and other fun hands-on projects, games and a field trip to the Dinosaur State Park, children will learn vital independent living skills and benefit from mentoring from blind adults. We serve children with a wide variety of skill levels. Instruction will be individualized to each child's needs. Our NFB BELL Academy helps build self-confidence and positive attitudes because successful, blind people will facilitate the majority of the lessons.
