Braille Literacy is one of the most-important skills for young children who are visually impaired to develop as they grow. Our Child Development Consultants work on braille literacy with their clients and their families daily, teaching and guiding them on their journey with braille literacy.

As part of our Library Month Celebration in April, Our Child Development Consultants put together a recommendation list of their favorite books available on for children who are visually impaired, ages 0-6.

The books are all affordable and vary in age and subject. Many also include a tactile element, which is a fantastic addition to any book for a child who is visually impaired.

Our Child Development Consultants also regularly offer free online videos in which they recommend activities that can easily be made and done at home for children who are visually impaired and their families. They can be found on our YouTube Channel.
