What is the Braille Challenge? It is an academic competition for the blind or visually impaired; it was created to encourage students living with vision loss to master their braille literacy skills. Honing such skills can pay immensely for academia and employment. This month, Shianne Ramsey (8) competed as a finalist in the National Braille Challenge in Los Angeles. Thanks to Shianne’s hard work and dedication, she reads at a fifth-grade level even though she starts the third-grade this fall.
“Braille is powerful. I’m telling you that right now,” Shianne said.
Please reach out to SDCB to learn how we can help you increase your independence. We offer several exciting programs for people living with visual impairment.
