Services for Children and Their Families

Braille Institute has a wide range of services and programs for blind and visually impaired children, ranging from infants to teenagers.

Our Child Development Program helps families of newborns adapt to raising a blind or visually impaired child—birth through age 6—and preparing them for a bright future without barriers.

Braille Institute also is the founder and host of The Braille Challenge and Cane Quest, two exciting and challenging competitions for blind and visually impaired youth throughout North America.
